Velvet Night


He spoke of a dream set place in a velvet night
He said it is a world of "do not enter" type of fight
I never understood the things he said and I was left to wonder
He said things that he spoke too greatly about,
Why these things he chose to ponder
The dream was sparse of love the scene was always dark
He told of the feeling of suffering a broken heart
The dream took a toll
It was like he was forever stuck in a hole
He said it was the dream that never went away
He always said to me, "Don't let your mind give way"
The dream got worse and he started to suffer
He locked himself away and started to breathe like a huffer
I visited him on a late, dark day
It was in his least favorite month, it was May
I then understood his velvet night dream
The blood flowed from his body like a thick, heavy cream
I remembered his details about this certain night
All I could do is sit in fright
I swear he couldn't see me
But his eyes seemed to pierce right through my body
This was his velvet night
I saw him sink six feet below, all I could think,
"At least he's not afraid of a height "
I'll never forget my friend
Not until the very end
And to him I swear
I can love from even all the way up there
