Entering the lake of dreams

Kelly Dale 1973 (Florida)

Entering the Lake of Dreams
At night I leave this place
As I go to the lake of dreams
Abandoning my sacred face
I can hear all the screams
I'm swamping in the fires
Of all my unwanted desires
As I keep searching my marsh of sleep
I've must of come to deep
It has become a nightmare
I try to escape or should I care
It's just it seems or is it real
For it seems the love will never conceal
The day moon shines through
Then I realized it's still true
To share laughter with tears,
Which laughs away imagined fears
