Dream cryer

Written by: John Castro

Some times when I cry the sound can not escape 
Like the screams from a prey coiled by a snake 

I try to release the anguish and I try to vent the pain 
but the clouds of my emotions refuse to exude the rain 

As I gasp for the wind that has already left 
The squeeze from the serpent tightens with every breath 

But only in my dreams can my tears be released 
and the sadness in my heart can finally sense the peace
