Blogger’s note: The following poem is not mine. It is authored by someone who is very dear to me. I encouraged this person to blog, however, he has no intention to do so. I asked if I would do it for him and he accepted.

Thought about you just won’t let me sleep at night,
Blinded by obsession and despair.
All you are is just synthetic paradise;
Steal my love from me without a prayer.
Feed me lies and cover with a smile of grace.
Promise me the truth and I’ll be saved.
Take away the pain and make my heart be brave.
Comfort me forever; I am your slave.
I’m running fast but getting nowhere.
I see the light but I never get there.
I hope I wake when the morning gets here.
Your love is like a nightmare.
