Lost in a house, old and creepy
I am searching for something unknown
I go room to room looking around
Found nothing or no one, I am still alone
The house is large and has many rooms,
This place is cold and barely lit
The first floor searched and bare
As dark as an abandoned pit
My thoughts are few and far between
As I take the stairs to the next floor.
I can't figure out what I am looking for
Hallway reveals more doors.
Why am I here? What do I seek?
My thoughts begin to race
The thing I want, desire, need
Will I find it in this place?
In the last room, at the end of the hall
In the corner, I see someone, holding theirself tight
The face looks up and tears fall off
I freeze in shock of the sight.
Its me, myself, and I in that corner
Lost, scared, and crying
Finally found myself, in this place
After so many years of trying
I see the sun rise at the window
But shadows take over the room
I turn and run down the hall
Leaving the other me with the gloom
I wake up, alone in my bed
To the sound of the alarm beeping
Trying hard to remember what it was
I was seeing while I was sleeping.
The memory of the dream was gone
And I go to start my day
Feeling like I was missing something
But couldn't really say
