Haunt – Poem

I feel alive when I’m sleeping

Because they can’t trust my words if I don’t speak

But the world knows most of my secrets

I feel alive when I’m asleep

And I haunt myself in the middle of the night

As I float through the frame of my body in my mind

Oh, everyone knows that I’m dying to feel fine

But the lens in my brain always tells me twisted lies

I see the world through a filter and I’m just a different kind

I feel alive when I’m sleeping, I always hide on the inside

And I haunt myself in the middle of the night

As I float through the frame of my body in my mind

Oh, everyone knows that I’m dying to feel fine

But the lens in my brain always tells me twisted lies

Tells me twisted lies

Tells me twisted lies

Tells me twisted lies

And I can’t help it, I’m not superhuman

I’m breaking

So maybe I fall, 

Maybe I fail, 

Maybe my heart’s not made of stone,

Maybe you’ll see secrets I never want to show

Because I haunt myself in the middle of the night
