Dreams Of Another La - Poem by La Janine Garrett

the things i have done hunt me still
these dreams are that of another
there nightmares sink throw thick walls
walls that i have shield my very own blood
desires of my very being
things that even the devil himself shade from
these years have been that of an endless trial
a trial that i had once believe my self able to survive
childish thoughts dreams of an anther
when i was a child i played with childish things
when the hardness of the world came knocking
i put those childish things away
away so that as the night camed those piercing scream of mine
would leave in me in the light of day
as those shadow clouds
away i put those things
those things that once brought a easies to mine
for if i wish to survive in this place i am to hold no hope
for i am to hold no dreams
for i am to be nothing but that of the shadow of the night

but if done, what then is Left is worth nothing
other then then the spit of whole
as the day falls to dreams
as the night comes to play
those screams could be hear to the ends of time
for as the light fades
even the brave of brave falls to the siren call of the the endless
nigh's pleasures of pain
