Was it a dream?

Was it a dream?

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

A dream/nightmare I had the other night.... decided to write about it.

"


I reach for help, no one is there

I try to breathe, gasping for air

Suffocate me, can’t take my soul

Desecrate me, a spirits toll

Try to escape, but I just fall

To my scarred knees, I plod and crawl

Still cannot breathe, frantic for air

Can’t pull away, Lord hear my prayer

Hands cover mouth, death seems so near

Open my eyes, grab rest my fears

For I am awake, twas just a dream

Demons can’t take, my soul from me

Loved this. My favourite lines were "Hands cover mouth, death seems so near
Open my eyes, grab rest my fears
For I am awake, twas just a dream"
Personally, i think this imagery was fantastic. You really made me and almost feel what was happening. Very fluid with movement and keeps a nice pace. :^) Thanks for the great read, Aaron!

Thank you very much Shawna! Appreciate your review and your kind words :)
Yep that's your work and I like it. I have had the moment of sleep but not sleep and I try to get up and I cannot move. It's as if my body is in one place and by brain in another and they are not communicating. Panic does begin to settle in after what seems like forever and yet it is just seconds. Imagery was very good and I was in that place again. thanks for another great read.

Oh and of course thanks to you too :)
The last line
Your soul refusing to give up

Going for that push of strength pulling you out of darkness

I love your work
It creates instant images
Strong and defined ones ....
