Tired of Dreaming
written June 16th, 2009
Subconciously I am afraid to go to sleep
Thinking about what I will dream of next
I don’t want to wake up in tears
Going back to sleep facing more fears.
Do I have to see you even though you aren’t real?
Tricking myself into believing you are still alive
In a half sleep, remembering the true story
That I won’t see you when I awake.
I don’t want to dream that I am burying you
Even though you’re still alive
You may be dead in my heart.
