Darkened Nights

Posted by Ashlea Burns on November 5, 2013 at 9:35 PM
Awakened by my frightened dreams
Everything is so real it seems
Good and bad, bad and good
With dreams like these I know I should
I should stay awake forever more
So my heart won't feel like it's tore

Dreams that frighten me each night
In their darkness there is no light
Fear of what I see deep inside
Makes me want to run and hide 
Trying to hide from all the pain
My heart feels heavy with strain

Feeling as though my heart may shatter
Knowing only one makes me feel like I matter 
Nothing in this world seems to be real
Nothing can take the pain away so I can heal

Darkness consumes me from all around
There is forever silence, there is never a sound
I feel trapped deep within my own mind
Looking for a way out, looking for a sign

There in the midst of the night
I see just a glimpse of light
Not enough to brighten this place
But enough to give me a taste

As taste of what could be
A taste of what I long to see
A taste of light to brighten my day
A taste of the words I long to say
