Eyes Open - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

Eyes open, wait for the new day
Stars in the sky take the pain away
I beg of you, I plead with you
Show me what is real, what is true

I've waited so long in this darkened room
Waited until all I know lay in wooden tombs
Still I wait for you, you promised me life
You told me tales, a world without strife

Sweet words of a life that held much anticipation
Now I stay here with nothing but deluded imagination
So my voice is silent and my trust lost
Is this what was meant by ‘at any cost'?

Silent I shall be but beware I shall not be stilled
Shadowed I will stay but my lust will be fulfilled
So examine what you take with a critical eye
Now it's too late to weave together a sincere lie

I am a nightmare haunting your waking world
Horrors hidden in silver coins and golden pearls
Treasures you promised me but were always mine
Well at least before that mistake and fatal crime

Can't forget can you? Poor little tormented beast
When you lured the naïve girl to a monsters feast
I won't let go of your promises and let you be
My body trapped but my spirit wanders free
