Sacred Slumber

The dream that night
Was a dream to be had
Making it seem as if
Everything was not so bad

But the startled awakening
And the palid, stony moon
Belie the beauty of the heavens
Now, suddenly, I'm stuck in the womb

Reality births my heart, my soul
Hidden within my inner child
And now I'm naked in the dark
The hurt in my eyes growing wild

To escape the truth
I must dive into oblivion
Where the demons harbor
To chance a dream again

Father, grant me
Eternal rest
For I have failed
This gruesome test

I now close my eyes
What's done is done
I lift up my soul
And let sleep come

I am amazed by this poem; it is extremely well written. I can say nothing more.

Hahaha, thanks! :) Really, I never get any comments on my stuff. I'm sure the majority don't. That really means a lot coming from someone not part of my little facebook circle! :D

Hahaa, same here. I'm going to read some of your poems. I posted a few too, but with so many being submitted it's hard for everyone to read every single one of course. Haha. Like your poem, btw. (:
