There are some nightmares that you never escape from
You may be awake, but the haunting still clings to the back of your mind
The images are forever ingrained and tattooed
Do you ever feel the way I do?
Is there anyone out there who wakes up crying
Because of the betrayal in a dream within a dream
Where the ones you loved most shot you in the lungs
And you couldn’t breathe
You were drowning in the sorrow of hurt
The buildup of your tears and tight throat had you breathless
As you tried to catch the remaining parts of yourself
…That you cry yourself awake, begging for someone to be there
Only to turn that head
and find no one
Do you feel like a heartless machine on those days when the nightmares still haunt in the sun instead of the moon?
Where you are only breathing and doing because the mechanics in a human allow you to?
I know I do when the nightmare buries itself onto my shoulders and stays
And it won’t let me go
