you own my heart

Most nights You leave me while sleeping Dark evenings draw in The thought of slumber frightens me Haunting images claim me then Scenarios that petrified me Repeat until dawn is seen Different scenarios Take you from me All beyond my control Unnerving me in the daylight When sleep has left my soul Different reasons nightly Your lost to me once more Your in-love with another You smite me so I fall I crawl through these dreams seeking A sobering glimpse of you Searching for you everywhere Though I never make it through Then I'm shocked to waking Wet eyes to find you safe Laying soundly beside me My heart begins to race I lay there silently watching Staring upon our dark walls As to me you are my universe My love you are my soul I think it's plainly seen The thing I fear the most Is waking up without you And leaving me alone

"Different scenarios Take you from me All beyond my control Unnerving me in the daylight When sleep has left my soul" - unfortunately, I can very much relate to this piece. You express yourself eloquently with a dark touch that I really admire. Always, Laura
