Dreamers Prayer

As I lay myself to sleep

The silence of the dark wraps tightly around my skin

Alone in my bed 

Swimming in my own imagination 

A fairytale of memories

Written with the deepest of regret

All feels lost, but perhaps it is not 

For all that could have been and all that has yet to come 

Can always be

If I only close my eyes

The Illusion of Happiness

Behind those bright green eyes

Lies darkness

Hidden behind a cheerful grin

The illusion of, a hopeful mind

Although reality is, there’s nothing left

No fight

No Strength

Only pain 

Wrapped around a hollow shell

Of the person she used to be
