My Past Seems But A Dream- A Poem

My Past Seems But A Dream

My past seems but a dream

A nightmare I've awakened from,

A darkness that barely exists,

A birth place I never came from.


A horror story with in my mind

Belongs deep in a book,

A drama with a plot line,

An idea that I took.


It's something I'd much prefer

Over the truth clouds that hover near

The memories such a blur

Yet create such fear.

Oh if it could only be

Some horrific creative story

Rather than that of my life

Cutting through like a knife

On a journey to break me down

Slice me, dice me

Into pieces of flesh left on the ground

Leaving me to be

To be...

Nothing but a memory.

Looking forward to the next dream in which the "creative story" unfolds. Writing it helps it become a reality. You did a great job in painting this blur in which " darkness that barely exists." Good description.
