I Call her Name

           I call her name in my sleep 
                 No, not this day 
            The gods won't let me be 
             Death will be my escape 
                From all the madness 
            All this madness from dreams  

                  No, not this day 
              They won't leave me at peace
            I call out to her from my sleep 
           I reach for her, and she is there 
           My comfort zone, I pull her close 
               It calms me to no end.

         She says nothing even though I know 
       I've pulled her away from her lucid dreams
       again ~ I need her, my angel of light 
     
        It's true, I need her there to save me
       Save me from  dreams of  the grave  
       I'm standing closer every time I sleep
    She is the only one who saves me from this fate 
      From falling into this grave I dug for me.



7/15/2000 my X used to have dreams of his grave,,,, he was always waking me, 
must of been his line of work.

    Sounds like this was a bit of a pain. He was very lucky to have had you. So where is he now? I hope he didn't see his wish granted. The perspective here is different and unexpected. A lot of fun on some level.
