There’s A Nightmare Under My Pillow©

When you lay your head down to sleep

You close your eyes


There’s a smile on your face

As you head off to dream land

But under my pillow I’m not so lucky

Because every time I lay my head down

I close my eyes

And try as hard as I can

To head off to my dream land

But there are no sweet dreams for me

Because, There’s a nightmare under my pillow

And it won’t go away

I turn right

I turn left

I move up

I move down

I open my eyes

I close my eyes

It doesn’t seem to matter

My nightmare is there when I close my eyes

It’s there when I open them

And Now I dread the night-time

Because I know it’s never going to get any better

My Nightmare must be a punishment

For what, I don’t know

I know I have to spend some time

Working it out or I’ll never be able

to lay my head upon my pillow

Close my eyes



Oh how I long to visit my long-lost dream land

Maybe it’s just my pillow

Next time

Maybe, I’ll just borrow yours

In Between The Lines©

You tell me a story and I pick it a part
I have to see if what you tell me really makes sense
Or must I read between the lines

You hide behind your words
Afraid to come clean with your pain, with your fears
Wrapped comfy in your disguise
While I sit back asking why your words seem so uncertain to me
I think of how I can pry, pry out the truth
The truth of the words that hide behinds your words

Then tears roll upon your rose filled checks
I hear your breathing quicken and
your arms wrapped firmly around yourself
Shaking your head from left to right
Realizing that there is no more running
You have to tell me all there is to tell

Twitching your fingers
Rolling your eyes
Finally the words start pouring out
And then I’m sorry that I asked
For the truth in between your lines
But I listen because I love you and that’s
What love is
