Your Debt

Tossing and turning, the night lingers long
She holds me hostage, her grasp very strong 
I heard my dream spin, her lips to my ears
Asking her to stop, only brought more tears

She’s proceeds to hurt, twisting more dam lies
With what we go through, another friend dies
Cold sweat brings the chills, blankets and sheets wet
She holds me hostage, they’ll never pay your debt

Letting it sit there, on the road I go

I dare not go back, I must not go slow

No matter what the person, has to say

Knowing in my heart, that God has just paid


Going straight forward I have but to push

Because the next stop, could be an ambush

Not being paranoid, I just know my limits

If a tale could be told, I could spin it
