NIGHTMARE ENTERS

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

A nightmare enters

              my sleep

the kingdom of tranquility

                 disturbed

by deep onslaught

           of mixed nihilism

 

soon I am chased

         and hunted by lions

through the streets I race

          desperately

     clinging to sanity

 

the dreams are dark

       and I can not

   sway them

           in the other direction

 

Moonlight reveals

            my every hiding place

the darkness can not hide me

        it merely reveals me

 

      again and again

 

on through the night with

          no peace and quiet

a nightmare fills my sleep

      and I anxiously await

         rebirth of the dawn

The times sink in at different rates, some instantly, some a year from event, some never. Like a death. Like any loss. ~S
