Never Alone

By 27th August 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

My Mama told me
Don’t be afraid
The bogymen are not real
And you will never be alone Dearest
Mama will always be with you.

Years have gone by
And Mama is Dead.
But sometimes in this place where
I now live
I see her, in my lucid moments I see her,
She tells me, you will never be alone dearest
So don’t be afraid
The bogymen are not real
And Mama will always be with you.

But when they give me my tablets
The ones that make me sleepy
The ones that make me dribble,
I talk to my secret friends
Who live inside my head
And Mama was right
I will never be alone
And the bogymen are not real
That’s what Mama said.

But Mama is Dead.
