lullaby 4/29/12

hush, child
nightmares are never true dreams, love
worry not your little head, dear
monsters are not
hiding under your bed
your closet is free
from all that you dread
there’s no reason to fear
the darkness called night
so just close back your eyes and
return to your dreams

what if you’re wrong?
what if you lied?
what if you’re just a demon
in an angel disguise?
how can you tell
how can you know
what’s real and what’s false?
my heart’s beating fast
sending me into spasms
hold me
kiss me
lay down beside me
chase away the crawling creatures
that perch on my wall
their fingers scritching and scratching
sending chills down my spine

hush, child
nightmares are never true dreams, love
that’s all you can
like a record that’s broken
or a model on display
in the window
i pass
on my way down to sleep
do you think you can tease me
and laugh at my pain?
i can hear you, you know
standing outside my door
telling company and guests
how excitable i am
to ignore my distress
and humor my tales
i don’t know any better
i am only a child
but i can see creatures crawling
scratching grooves in my wall

hush, child
stop lying to me
they’ll devour my flesh
leaving nothing to bury
then you’ll wonder and wander
aimlessly through your days
regretting your actions
empty words and displays
of emotionless pander

hush, child
nightmares are never true dreams, love
worry not your little head, dear
monsters are not
hiding under your bed
your closet is free
from all that you dread
there’s no reason to fear
the darkness called night
so just close back your eyes and
return to your dreams and
sleep tight
