Slumber of Screams Slumber of Screams
By J-Bird

 
 

Slumber of Screams
 
Night has come,
with night come dreams.
But nightmares too,
and with them, screams.
 
Screams you hear,
and scream you do.
When all you fear,
comes after you.
 
Visions of War,
of blood, of pain
tumble through
your mind again.
 
You toss and turn
as inner pain
flows from your eyes
like jungle rain.

Then gentle voices
calling your name.
"Were you having
bad dreams again?"
 
"Yes," you whisper
 your voice so weak.
 "Did I wake you,
 from your sleep?"

They answer, "No,
you didn´t, Face."
You hear the lie,
feel the soft embrace.

"Just you sleep
and we will stay.
Help you keep
those dreams abay."
 
Content you sigh,
and go to sleep.
Knowing they will
their promise keep.

Night has come,
with night come dreams.
But only good ones
when with your team.
