Phantoms

Somewhere deep in the twilight there’s flickers of a dawn
Convulsing, sleeping in fits
All I can do is stare at these walls

I dream of a hazy past, I try to find sense in the spectrum
I can forget about easy peace
I can do nothing but allow my ghosts to overrun

Phantoms of the day
Awaken me with a scream
Echoes bounce and shatter my skull
I will never find peace in my dreams

My mind drifts to automatic, conscious but barely alive
Spiralling, I can only fall down
Even in my dreams I barely survive

Shackled to dark creation, I poisoned myself against me
Darkness extends and smothers
My mind a glow with dark fire within me

Phantoms of the day
Awaken me with a scream
Echoes bounce and shatter my skull
I will never find peace in my dreams


The End
