Sweet Dreams

Sweet dreams
Swirl around my head
Blocked by a nightmare
Instead

Blissful nights
Rest outside
Masking the fear
In my head

My life’s fantasy
Before me
Locked behind
The gates of dread

The single key
Lost
Beneath a crowd
Of pure hatred

Look left, then right
No place to hide
Stand straight, be brave
The words echo in my head

Now is the time
To let it all go
My broken dreams and shattered heart
Soon will mend
