Slow down mind.
I feel them all around me.
They creep amongst us while we sleep.
Slow down mind because you run so fast, I want to weep.
I hear the bump in the night.
I hear that squeak of the floor.
I lay there watching the door.
I listen for their footsteps.
I pray that they take and go away.
I lay in my bed and panic.
Slow down mind for you once again acting manic.
He lays there sleeping.
I listen to him breathe.
I want to wake him up so he can check the house.
I look up at the clock and it’s the middle of the night.
My mind is working overtime.
It tells me that their here.
It runs through the meadow and I just pray that it will go slow.
Slow down mind for I’m in fear.
My body needs sleep.
My mind needs to rest.
I need these nightly noises to go away from my head.
Please won’t you help me.
Please tell me what to do.
I get out of bed as quietly as I can.
I don’t won’t to disturb him because he sleeps so peacefully.
Does he know what I hear at night.
Does he know that my mind is running wild.
Does he know I’m so exhausted because these bumps in the night are wild.
I sit in the dark and I’m all alone.
It’s just me and my mind as I sit in the dark.
Slow down mind, I need you to park.
I need you to let me be.
Can’t you see.
Slow down mind, slow down.
