Now I lay me down to sleep….wait I can’t sleep anymore.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep……doesn’t work. My soul is doused with shame and guilt.
Am I trying to pray? To protect my soul from what? Needs protecting from myself.
I have been on my knees begging for forgiveness. I have been more than just naughty.
The bright warm light is now cold…pale…..extinguished.
I just want to shake the thoughts out of my head. It was me but wasn’t me. Can’t you see that? No guess not. My words for you were real and I said them from behind the wrong image. I am forever sorry…..doesn’t matter anymore.
Now I lay me down to sleep……..
I pray dear Lord never let me wake…
