With Closed Eyes

Where I lay to sleep is never home
I awaken in a dream to never want to sleep
Twisted nightmares go flat
but never make me runaway
yet still I turn and look back

such a waste of time...

your words flow as if they were mine
repeating simple sentences
and still I fake this smile
to me, to you

This day ends, my door shuts
My eyes rain like the sky in an April storm
and these thoughts consume me
They stay stuck and unexposed
I drown and sink under them
And still my eyes are closed
