wrapped in pretty lace

Go to sleep and all your wishes will come true they say

I tried to sleep but was dismayed

I couldn’t sleep, well, not that deep

I was full of excited energy, my essence wanted to play

I am sleepy now, tired, and woeful that I didn’t sleep

I hope my wishes aren’t lost, wiped away by a sweep

They’ll try again, they always say

To get me back to where I belong

But I am tired of them repeating, the same old song

My soul cries loudly and my essence is dying

It’s dying of many broken hearts

For I love quite deep and I love a lot

Yet I feel forgotten and left to rot

I need their warm embrace

I don’t need false promises wrapped in pretty lace
