A-Loan (uhh-loh-nnn)

Can you leave me a loan?

I could use the help tonight.

I need a friend who I can phone:

to keep me company until first light.

I feel so alone, trapped in myself.

I’m not sure how to break out.

I see some light, but I need some help.

Show me sunshine I know nothing about.

Just leave me a loan.

I miss that face that appeared so frequent.

Just. Come. Home.

Explain to me where my friend went.

The days pass by yet you do not.

All I wanted was some of your time.

I think about you more than a lot;

We’re alone together: the saddest rhyme.

Life is but a Dream

Oddly enough, my dreams are too real

And I keep on seeing things only my mind knows.

The people I recognize and the emotions I feel

run off to a place where my memories go.

As my eyes close, I recount my day.

I think about what I could’ve changed

and I start to drift to a place far away:

to a familiar place that still feels strange.

Lost in a flood of overwhelming thoughts,

I fight a battle within my own head.

I kill off my demons to connect the dots

all before I get to leave my bed.
