If only

If only

A Story by ragelmarli

Always the sleepless dreamer.

It's the dreamers that can never fall asleep. 

The ones with the high hopes 
the ones with broken hearts. 
the ones who want to
escape reality. 

The ones 
who cry when the moon peaks.
who pray when their hearts are heavy.

The ones
who will never be good enough
the ones
who's shoulders ache from the burdens they carry

If only they can close their eyes
without their past clenching on their stiff legs

"Let me go" the dreamers pray

with tired eyes and trembling hands
with lonely lips and icy feet

as the clock ticks and hours pass

with angry minds and grinding teeth they pray and pray

"If only..."

In my mind I heard music playing in the background while I was reading. Your words could be easily reorganized into a song - something acoustic that builds:

"Let me go!" the dreamers pray
with tired eyes and trembling hands raised
"Let me go!" the dreamers pray
as the clock ticks and hours pass away
