I took a broad step into the land of dreams.
The next thing I knew I was stood in a haven of hills and streams.
An angel appeared in the corner of my eye.
It told me it meant no harm but I later discovered this was a lie.
I stood there for a moment staring in awe,
Still to this day I can't believe what I saw.
I knew it was a dream but it felt like I was wide awake.
All of a sudden, the angel's eyes turned red and the world began to shake.
The next thing I knew I was sat in a dark room,
I saw the angel watching me through the door as I sat in the gloom.
I have sat in the room for years, counting down the days;
Planning my escape in my head in millions of ways.
Maybe someday soon someone will hear my prayer,
And I will be free of this hell of a nightmare.
