A dream out of hell


Can't close my eyes,
I don't want to sleep,
I don't want to lie down,
I don't want to sleep,

It always starts out the same old way,
Me getting angry,
And trying to run away,
The farther I get,
The more I get scared,

Now then there's a car,
I know it from somewhere,
I get in and turn to the driver,
Then there is no one there,

The I jump out,
Everything changes,
I go from the country side,
To a place with strange faces,

A court yard of a prision,
Is where I found myself now,
Wanting to escape it,
But not knowing how,

Now there is a man in the shadows,
And he gins,
and then says to me,
'Come with me if you want to live'

Now walking down a corridor,
Dark with cells on both sides,
People are reaching out to get me,
And there's something that hides,

It looks like a shadow,
It attacks like a lion,
I look in the cells,
and there are people dying,

these 'shadows' are eating,
On those people and their souls,
The shadow man walk in front of me,
And his dagger shines light and shows,

Shows the faces in horror,
And their being devoured,
Screaming and wailing,
and I am scared,

Then something hits me,
I black out, I'm unconsious,
Then when I come to,
I'm sorrounded by darkness,

Darkroom with padded walls,
And the shadows are creeping,
their coming for me,
closer and closer their creeping,

I begin to run towards the light from the doorway,
But the door gets farther back,
With every single step I take,
Then the door closes and everything goes black.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
