The Living Nightmare

by TinyDancer46   Sep 6, 2006

Haunting every feeling
Leaving cracks upon my heart
A tremor taking over me
And tearing me apart

The nightmare as I'm dreaming
Killing me each time I wake
A cut that bleeds a little more
With every breath I take

Like chains inside my prison
Or a noose upon my rope
Shredding every wish I've had
By tearing out my hope

The tears behind my smile
And the truth as I pretend
It's pain that I've kept hidden...
It's the death of my best friend
