Lonely Lullaby


Sing a love song in the dark
A lonely lullaby
A plethora of emotion
As I drift into the night

Meet my ears with sweet serenade
Soothe my heart so I don't cry
Fall away from my embrace
As all tend to in due time

Break reality with melody
Forge a false devotion soon to die
Ease the nightmares; feed the dreams
Let me from melancholy fly

I ache for someone to cling to
I easily will swallow the lie
Lend me your voice of beauty
Please just sing this one song tonight

    A beautiful love story filled with so many emotions. Reminds me
    of the sweet song that a mother sings to her newborn baby.
    A lullaby sung with all of the love and care then listened to with
    undivided attention then slowly ends in sleep. Loved it. (Report) Reply

    Nicely done, the raw emotion is very believable. My favorite verse is Forge a false devotion soon to die - it's a beautiful way to describe the lullaby that can promise so many sweet things, but fades away as sleep grips you. (Report) Reply
