A night terror a night keeps sleep out of sight.
I hardly sleep and when I do I often dream of murdering you
not out of wanting or even need.
These thoughts and dreams will just never leave.
Every night I take a pill,
in the hope of sleeping sound and still.
But to the horror of my mind, what's in my brain is the slaughter.
stabbing, ripping, thrashing about
ill scream in alarm of that there's no doubt
smash my head into the wall or make a great fall.
At this point, I just don't sleep at all.
