no return



going to sleep tonight with hopes of no return
taken by sleep in hell I shall burn

death sounds so dark let's call it slumber
the tempting thoughts they will outnumber

the few that try to keep me inline
but to everyone else of course I'm fine

my face shows no pain
my tears hidden in the rain

how long till someone sees
the truth that hides inside me
