Laying In Waiting

Alicia BeavisPosted by Alicia Beavis 29 May, 2009 10:46AM

First time i've written anything in a while. Something new for once.

Laying in waiting;
Nightmares await,
The solitude in darkness,
That's what my mind creates.

I scream, I shout.
My body twists and it turns.
Knife through the heart;
I awake and return.

Living the day,
Fearing the night.
Building up the strength,
To put up a decent fight.

Trying to move on.
Trying to forget.
Trying to survive,
Living with this regret.

Captured by the past.
Held in my own cell.
Deprived of happiness;
My own personal hell.

Laying in waiting;
Nightmares await,
The solitude in darkness,
That's what my mind creates.
