I can’t see anything, for I am sleeping.
I can’t feel anything, for I am dreaming.
I’m breathing, I’m breathing.
Chest in, chest out.
The darkness surrounds me in a beautiful blanket of security and love.
I embrace it, waiting for morning to come.
And then, there is a tear in the blanket that hugs me.
There is a tear, how can this be?
I open my eyes, my body still.
Suddenly, this loving night brings such a chill.
I can see my ceiling, my tapestry above me.
But this is when it happens, this is when I see.
My heart begins feeling in pain.
I see a dark figure, I see these hands.
These hands, they belong to no man.
They are reaching, reaching, reaching for me in the night.
No matter how hard I try, I simply cannot fight.
And in this terrible darkness, a sight quite unseen, all my body can do, is let out one final scream.
