Sweet Visions

sleeping - flickr by Grevel

Spoken softly into the night
Though in the dark, he speaks of light
Promises of brighter days
Are only words in the haze
Of sleep and wake within her mind
Stirring dreams of a tender kind
Replacing nightmares that used to haunt
With sweeter visions that seem to taunt
In a love so true she just can’t conceive
But he won’t give up making her believe

Taking a Chance

Vision skewed and thoughts so dark
Searching, desperate, for that spark
To light her way through this place
And through the dark she will race
What she sees ahead can’t be real
Those hands reaching out that would steal
The heart that beats within her chest
And yet her soul feels such unrest
Unsure of the path she should take
Thinking of all that is at stake
Slowing down and breathing deep
With only faith she must leap


Rhythm of the Rain

A return stroke, cloud-to-ground lightning strike.

Dark clouds hang heavy overhead
With an ominous sense of dread
No light this day is shining through
The storm above begins to brew
Winds sweeping and lightning flashes
In the distance thunder crashes
The rain falling in heavy sheets
The worlds now a drum that it beats
It keeps a rhythm true and pure
That nothing could ever obscure
So as the rain falls this day
And the trees do gently sway
Let the rhythm fill your heart
And let that dread now depart


Screams

Screaming out into the night
The fear within taking flight
Frustrations rise like the wind
No longer can I pretend
That all is right and all is well
As I slip down into this hell
A self-made prison built of hate
The walls as cold and dark as slate
And they are closing in evermore
And stifling me down to the core


Cries in the Dark

crying...

Waking in the night and reaching out
Seeking some solace to soothe this doubt
To soothe the fear of a dream lost in the haze
To find comfort in anothers touch and gaze
But in the dark I just keep reaching
No touch to find, my cries beseeching
No one to hear them, alone in the dark
Fall back into sleep and dreamscapes so stark
