Later that night…

alluring presence pried my vision’s range
hooked in her image a little bit grand
from where i stood, i felt a little strange
looked like the lady in Frankenstein’s land

later that night she walked into my dream
in her hand she held a lighted candle
called my name… her fangs showed, i had to scream
in fear, i hurriedly took my rifle

that brief mental picture awakened me
vampires take their flights into worried minds
good sweet sleep requires the mind worry – free
so we can dream away nightmares of all kinds

dive into the waters of the murky sky
gather the stars from the bottom of the ocean floor
empty the rivers to run dry
color in oil the flowers drawn in fashion

dream all the nightmares of the night
scatter the scenes in your slumberous sleep

be the knight hero as you snooze back into a trance
at peace with yourself as the soul rests to retire

scribble all the letters in the milky way
far apart they float in senseless drafts of ghosts
clothed in white as you near the gates of the graves
open wide your eyes as you comb your curly ash blond hair…
