Birds at Night

All these birds are chirping outside my room
and all I want is to get a night's sleep,
my mind's consumed with it's own songs of doom
so I'm hoping the joy of the birds can keep.

Daggered beaks keep pelting towards my eyes
so I have no choice but to flinch and blink
but I open them to empty black skies
and now I'm far too scared to even think.

These happy songs sound more like playground taunts
and this sleepless night is hard to swallow
when I cannot fall into my nightmare's haunts
as I'm afraid about the real tomorrow.

So please just blanket me under your wings
and let us see what the morning brings.
