In slumbers hour

They come for me in slumbers hour
Pulling me from sleep.
Haunting shadows, darkness towers
stronger as I weep.

Pulling me from sleep they say
bow now for the King
Our master, calls to you this day
and so the darkness sings.

Haunting shadows dancing fierce
pull me from my bed,
chaos spilling in endless tears
bare without a thread

Stronger as I weep dark shadows
shedding from my skin
demons scratching, dark eyes glow
when touching on my sin.

The devils kiss upon my nape
awakening lost thoughts
my soul today they wish to take
the pure blood they’ve sought

The devil’s kiss upon my nape
Now to be his queen
his Kingdom I will surely take
for this is just a dream.

Caught in the gnarled teeth of my terrors

Caught between two planes of existence,
slumbers promise a far of lie,
lost within the realms of my dreams
all fingers, eyes, smiles and presence,
held captive within your essence
as spectres draw me from my sleep
fingers cold dragging, pulling
gasping as touch becomes real
and I am awake, in the darkness
of eternity,
caught between the two planes of existence,
again and again and again
you are there, waiting for me to dream….
again and again and again
they are there waiting to pull me from my love.
