Why can’t anyone else see the horrors I’m keeping?
Secrets that naught come to light
Suffocate me with all their might.
Come with me into the night!
Yes, I did see someone
Strolling down the street of my nightmares.
Watching him smile was quite a feast.
He hummed a little tune
As he skipped along
The grounds I dreamed of going once
With him by my side.
(Oh, he is misery and mine!)
