Sleepless Nights

A ghost that haunts my thoughts
my nights are fearful
My guilty conscience pressing me
reminding me of my misdeeds
I gasp, eyes wide open
begging him to leave me
I seek forgiveness and release
from those I`ve decieved
I clutch the blankets
sweat trickling down my face
He stands there above me
his horrid face looms in
I turn away
but his cold lifeless breath
touches my ears
I shiver in fear
Let me sleep!
I beg you
Let me sleep! 
At least a night or two
release me from your curse
Leave me alone
give me some peace
I`ll atone for my sins
So let me sleep.
