The Perfect Crime

Rain falling on my heart
Wind blowing through my soul
Tears rolling down my face
Missing parts that make me whole

Evil dreams haunt me
They linger in my waking state
And though I have many blessings in my life
the sadness stays with me; lying in wait

Searching for a hole to dig into
Someplace it can find in me
To tear down my happiness
To set the sadness free

Free to destroy my soul and mind
And wound those around me I love
 I pray to stay well and happy
But I know sadness fits my heart like a glove

I do everything to fight it
Optimism is my best defense
I am thankful my blessings are many
And to have darkness overcome me now just doesn't make sense

 But I know misery is waiting
Patiently for the perfect time
To creep up silently inside me
to kill me from the inside-
The perfect crime.

So save me now from myself
keep me happy and well
Though i'm free from my chains
For now-but can I stay free forever?
Only time will tell.

    Julie, I have spent many hours wondering where my nightmares are born. "Evil dreams haunt me" too. Thank you for sharing this awesome verse. Carolyn
