Nightmare: A poem.

Updated on April 25, 2012

Dreams weighing me down

Heavy

Walking through molasses

Old faces appear

Grimacing

Hateful

Not friendly at all

I’ve fallen to my knees

Hands stuck now

I drag myself

Scream out for help

Enemies

Only enemies

Unhappy memories

A foot steps down

She always hated me

Face now in muck

I gasp for air

Laughter

The last thing I ever hear.

      Nightmares are horrible, but at least you were able to put it to good use. Voted up.

      Very scary way to awaken. Very glad you had the wits to write about the dream while it was fresh on your mind. up
