On That Night - Poem by deranda cryer

Now i lay me down to sleep
I pray my lord my soul to keep.

sparling back into my past
The nightmare upon my mind is cast.

Remembering not long ago
When death took me into it' fold

Like a young child awakening
facing the pillow, sufficating

All my senses with air to me
but i counld not move, i could not breath

As i suffered i realized
There was a reason i survived

Inside that room i wasn't alone
There was a presence nor flesh nor bone

Even though i could not see
I felt its spirit beyond imaging

More afaid of life than death
I broke its hold upon my flesh

When i wake im remembering
the crashing of pain and dimembering

That one day a vision forms
Inside my mind a dream was born

I drove a car thats now destroyed
The wounds inside like a broken toy

Looking through my horrified eyes
Some how i love this girl inside

This little girl i try to embrace
She calls my name from outerspace

It's the voice of my sisters ghost
I reach for her but the vision is lost
