Six Foot Deep

You left the back door open
All my dreams and sheep were gone
You never had this power before
Curse your evil carousel clowns

Whisper brushing your cold ear
Go slowly so not to wake
Now increasing distance between us
As you jump on your failing brakes

The ghost of present moments
Trying to get my dreams and sheep
And I watch your failed attempts
Landing In and over six feet deep
