Nightmares

I can see everything clearly ahead of me but all my mind knows is a haze

My footprints are haphazard from the circles I’ve been tracing for days

They say that I’m here and then insist it’s as simple as crossing a bridge

But how can I move when I’m standing paralyzed at the edge of a ridge

It’s absolutely impossible to be fearless when you know there’s nowhere to hide

And it’s the easiest thing to walk through hell when the devil is by your side

If I close my eyes to dream of peace all I see are nightmares instead

A coldness and a blackness permeating every though that echoes inside my head

I can see everything clearly ahead of me and the outlook appears stark

All I long for is a light to brighten the path that I must travel in the dark.”
