Dark

To dark to see

But you know

There are there

And free

Waiting

Just waiting

Til' the time is right

To strike you, with all there might

There's nothing you can do

You cant hide or escape

There anywhere

Any form, and shape

What are they you ask?

Don't you know?

There nightmares

But not the ones that you know

No, these are different

They don't haunt your sleep

It's not shutting your eyes you have to worry about

It's opening them,

full of doubt

Seeing the world

That you have to worry about

Except it even worse

Like an unbearable curse

Knowing that you cant wake up

Its real

So much that is hard to feel

Feel alive

And know one will care

So it makes me think

Maybe I would rather have

A nightmare.
