Fever Dreams

Fever Dreams

A Poem by Lost in Wonderland

I'm so tired,
And yet I can't sleep.
This heat is embodied misery;
Drowning me,
Suffocating me,
Never ceasing,
And all consuming.

I grasp at cool breezes,
Rare like a single drop of water
In a long parched desert
And I did not know how thirsty I was
Till I had but a little to drink,
And the water was bitter, not sweet.

Those blankets are tangled at my feet.
What once was a long awaited dream
Becomes a feverish nightmare:
Tossing in turning
Scaring and burning,
But didn't I call this pain my home?

I'm a prisoner locked in a fantasy-
Looked at like a princess
And treated like a queen,
But witness to the cruelness
Of those who claim it is all in love
All in good fun.
Fun like a knife piercing your heart.

And God, I just can't escape this awful heat!
Someone save me from this dreaded heat!

Author's Note

Lost in Wonderland
If you can't tell, the lack of air conditioning and certain people are driving me slightly bonkers.

Thanks! I'm glad you got something out of it :)
God bless
What I like about this is it could be something as simple as not having any AC, but I'm sure a lot of people would be able to find deeper meaning. If you can affect people in a way where they see more than what's on the surface, I believe you've done your job as a writer.

it's nice how you got the inspiration from the lack of air conditioning haha. i take this poem expresses the mess going in your head in such awful temperature. anyway it's interesting, i think it's quite simple.....and the emotion is expressed clearly. A good piece

Great piece Mickey. I wish I knew how a true heatwave felt, we complain it's too hot if it reaches 70 in the UK.

Trust me, in this case ignorance is bliss haha. Thanks for the review:)
Melodramatic suffering seems to be the most humorous thing to me, no offense to you of course. I find it amusing (I do use 'amusing' in a complimenting fashion, the same as one might use enticed or intrigued).

Suffering turns us poetic. Great description!
