When my eyes close

In the quiet of the night
I listen with eyes closed
for the last whisper
of the day
dreams are heard
within the beating
of my heart
the painful memories
escape
leaving puddles
on my pillow
bedroom walls
close in on me
their secrets so dark
they lie once more
once painted white
as I close the door
all I see is red

Beautiful Dreams

I lay here quietly
completely still in this very moment
the taste of sweet freedom
finally upon my tongue
bare soul to the world
to you, to me
and I dream
no more black and white
I dream only in color
I no longer fall apart
shattering into a million tiny pieces
forgiveness finds me
like a paper cut
some wounds just never heal
until again
I sleep
and I dream

Believe

The lingering of my soul
drips like rain
escaping from the sky
the tears
make puddles at my feet
my memories are given
but mostly in secret
the beating of my heart
pounds loudly in my ears
I close my eyes and sleep
just so I can breathe
to dream
just so I can see
and to live
just so I can believe.
