All I want is for my dreams not to be taken away.
I asked for your truth… in belief, in certainty
I needed your love
As I gave it always
But I treasured those dreams
And yet …
I am losing my reason
My understanding … my mind
Yes my mind becomes clouded,
… my own feelings?
I fear I can no longer know them.
… and I do not know now which way to turn.
Judgement is lost now.
I am sure that in hell I will burn
As even now I feel that each day takes me one step
… one steady step down to perdition
One foot after the other I go down.
Descending to fire infernal… flames eternal
One dream after the other comes tumbling down
Every thought I have is immediately contradicted by another
And there’s no continuity in confusion
I thought I knew people
I thought I could read them
… but it is gone now
Open mouthed, wide eyed I live in a world of violent uncertainty
No beacons, no hand stretching out. No aid, no help
Just fear of not knowing any longer.
And the fear of losing my mind.
