Nightmare

Still I try to awaken From this nightmare I know I must go on But the pain is never-ending Like a fire A simple spark at first Then it grows with intensity Until your world Is engulfed in flames A part of you is going And never more can be replaced You seek comfort Yet none is to be found You are running down A lonesome dark hallway With no end in sight Yet, you run Never missing a step Nor slowing You feel your eyes start to burn Yet no tears will fall For they have dried Like a lake in a dessert In the heat of summer Now your mind is racing Like a fan spiraling out of control Nothing can be changed History is written Just one more minute you seek Oh, how you wish You could turn back time Just simply to say goodbye If only you could Hear her voice once more However, you can not If only she could Tell you everything would be ok Like she did when you were a child However, she can not If only you could See her grin with that stupid smirk One more time However, you can not If only you could Cry on her shoulder Feeling her comforting embrace However, you can not If only you could Say you’re sorry But you had to stand your ground However, you can not If only you could Have erased her pain However, you could not If only she could Have turned that life away However, she could not If only she had Stopped that night However, she did not If only you had said “I love you” that last time However, you did not If only she were Still here However, she is not If only you could Awaken from this nightmare That is now became your life However, you will not
