Dreams of a Tortured Soul


Reality wavers, rippling water
Details appear blurry, out of focus
Surrealistic vision seen then altered
Mother fights, protecting unborn daughter
Unforeseen threat appeared then engrossed us
Reality wavers, rippling water
Soldier cries, surrounded by fresh slaughter
Forced enemies, far too young, blood stains US
Surrealistic vision seen then altered
Child hides, anticipating, breathes softer
Single shot kill, "Now Daddy can't hurt us"
Reality wavers, rippling water
Lone wolf snarls, accepting his offer
Bared fangs, crimson splatter, life essence soaks
Surrealistic vision seen then altered
Whirling images, life's pieces soldered
Details appear blurry, out of focus
Reality wavers, rippling water
Surrealistic vision seen then altered
