Trying to Find A Dream Within This Nightmare

Trying to Find A Dream Within This Nightmare

A Poem by Beautifully Tragic xPoetry Queen

Wake me up,

Before it all falls apart.

Trying to find a way
To mend this broken heart.


The sun and the moon

Have started a war within my head.

Attempting to be the peacemaker of it all

But my soul's been torn to shreds.


Echoes in the mist of the night

I can hear all my demons scream

Shadows moving across the walls

When all I want is to live in a dream.


This nightmare is never-ending,

Bugs crawling upon my skin.

The monsters of my dark reality,

I refuse to let them win.


I'm burning in the fire

Pushing myself through all the pain.

Dark clouds always following close

Pouring down their acid rain.


I'm learning to embrace the silence,

It's the only way I can heal.

Wrapped in a shell of my own cliches

Nothing can change the way I feel.


Writing my heart out to the world,

Just trying to clear some air

Desperately searching for something more

A dream within this nightmare.

Written at the dentist. As much as I hate writing rhyming poems, I think I'm pleased with this one.
