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
