See Me, Save Me

If you see me
It would only be
A smear on bloodstained window

If you were me
I would hope to be
A savior for a fee

Saving me
So lavishly
From the world that won't stop killing me

I hope we leave
In fashion bereaved
That would be for all eternity

Pray for me
In hope I might see
The gold around your face

So that your peace
Will not be brief
Or alone upon this reef

I hope to be
What you see
So to love you in my sleep

You know that time in between awake and sleep where you are really drowsy and words just fall out of your head? Well this is one of those. Created out of thin air. I do believe I have had tried to write a similar one down on several occassions but this is the successful edition.

This is really good. I love when you use 'peace' and 'brief' as a ryhme.

It may have been created out of thin air, but I really enjot the simplicity yet meaning in this one. I thinks its great even though you may think its not as good as some of your other work.
