Thoughts of you fill my pillow

My eyes are heavy but will not close,
Scared to dream of what no other knows.
The lights are off, yet inside things remain bright,
Shifting my dreams from you is a constant fight.
Memories become shifted by faceless nightmares,
In my slumber Im thrown into a world for which not one cares.
Fighting the sandman only quickens his pace,
With every droop of my eyes I see only your face.
A constant reminder refusing to rest,
Pushing me further, my self I must test.
So let the nightmares to continue to draw near,
For in my reality have I already faced my greatest fear.
