A Nightmares Plaything

A Nightmares Plaything

A Poem by Matt M.

A Hard Rock song I wrote


A Nightmares Plaything

Restless nights and evil dreams

Which one would you choose?

I would choose the restless nights

staying up alone at night

There is silence all through the house

not a creature was stirring

except the demons in my head

thought of my sins and lies

clawing their way out

Now hush little demon

Don't you cry

Satan is going to sing you a lullaby

And if that lullaby wont work for you

Satan's going take you to the streets

to wreck havoc to your hearts content

Now you ask yourself

Restless nights and evil dreams?

What the hell does that even mean?

Aren't they the same thing

But only if they could be

because the dreams are real

They're dreams about the future

event most likely to happen

Not of happiness but of foreboding

You look at me with twisted eyes

Eyes of knowing but with disgust

Don't look at me I yell

but its no use

For I'm speaking to a mirror
