Theme: Sleep

Sound I Sleep

It was dark, silent, lonely night,
with not a single speck of light...
the moon completly out of sight,
I longed so much for the morning,
the morning warm and bright.

Never thought this night to be so long,
I started sensing something to be wrong...
I heard things in a withered song,
about sounds that lead to gloom,
things to which today I belong.

The rattling of leaves,
the high pitched shrieks,
the doors and window creak,
I even saw something moving,
and heard that something screech.

Nothing happened but I could sense it all,
an apparition in front, huge and tall,
bodies around, creep and crawl,
a dead girl playing with her dead doll.

I forced shut my eyes in order to sleep,
I felt helpless and started to weep,
I felt scared till the core inside and deep
I trembled and shivered and din't realize
didn't realize when I fell 'sound asleep'.
