Surrogate Dreams by Troy DeFrates
When your hurt follows you into your bed
impossible to escape the real pain
I’ve tried everything possible in vain.
Sleep brings memories that are bad instead
cruelty has my reality shred
beaten by my wife that went pure insane.
Memories haunt me remaining my bane
my dreams release my fear within my head.
I’d surrogate dreams were something so true
plug in at night to replace dreams of fear
escape reality in my deep thought.
Replace my darkness with oceans of blue
take away my angst replace it with cheer
surrogate dreams to hide pain you have brought.
