Familiar tracks of salty tears
Wend leisurely downward
To nestle in stubborn fears

Dreams within dreams
Of Evils insidious sins
Nobody actually wins

Outwardly sweet silence
Thru darkest part of night
Where I’ve lost my sight
And can’t feel the fight

Where in the light of day
Well played thoughts
Barely keep it all at bay

And stubborn pride
That so sorely insists
I will have my way
