Faulty Connection

Thu, 09/12/2013 - 19:32 -- Jerehmi

Close your eyes and lie to rest. Look at you, what a mess. Sleep all day, party all night. You're almost always out of sight. I just want you to quit, is that too much to ask? Since you're always gone and having a blast. Fall to rest, my dear daughter. Don't stay up and be a pest. As I pat your head, I say goodbye. I wonder to myself, why? How could you choose this way of life? Go to sleep, don't continue your strife. Be settle, stay calm. Fall to sleep, in my palm. You stop your breath, I walk away. I only wish, you could have stayed.
