Dream Ghosts

the ghosts of long ago
come to me in my sleep
i hear their voices
memories i try not to keep

i see the shadows
in my dreams
i know its not real
not what it seems

the ghosts, use my mind
to haunt
they use my memories
to taunt

i hear their laughter
their evil screams
all their games
are in my dreams

they laugh, they yell
they fight
they stay in my head
all night

they steal my breath away
iv nowhere to hide
im paralyzed with fear
feeling like i just died

a sudden noise
makes them leave
then i wake up
i can breathe

i wished the ghosts
would disappear
so i could sleep
without any fear
