Dreams of the Past

By
More by this author
oh, how i love to dream, always that one light to gleam,
but always to show, all that light will ever show
the secrets and the lies
the suffering in my eyes
it was my only mistake
and now im burning alive
stay alive and stay awake, because your demons never wake
your never ending dream keeps you burning on a stake
always in your mind always in your dreams, haunting the visions that make
your world tremble, resent the fear, resent your hate, adding death to your state
of being a being in a world of seeing
the world sees only what others show and together their image is what they know
break free from the lies, set your minds to the skies
looking down on the world only then can truth be seen
wholly and fully as it is by itself
looking back in me only then can the truth reveal
the secrets and the lies 
the suffering in my eyes
it was my only mistake
and now im burning alive
it was my only mistake, il never be alright.
the secrets and the lies, stirring up my fright
the suffering in my eyes, drowning out that light
it was my only mistake, and now im burning alive
it was my only mistake, il never be alright.

I've always doubted rhyming poetry because I think a lot of times it doesn't have as much meaning, but you have proved me wrong here. This is amazing.
