Last Night’s Dream – Written February 1995 (Aged 19)

Last Night’s Dream

i came round listening to my head
glad to be alive
when i thought i was dead
someone taunting me in my room
holding an astral gun
i am nearly twenty
but i still wanted mum
standing there, playing music in my room
i am awake by asleep
and i could not make you out
i just saw a shape by my feet
what is all this about?
scared to close my eyes
i thought i was going to die
even though i wanted to know why
i know i could not go to sleep
although i already was
could not give in,
yet i did, scared me nearly to death
last night’s dream
