Nightmare

Nightmare

A Poem by Drifter
"

A poem about the journeys in nightmares, how they sometimes just don't make any sense.

"
A sequential deterioration of bastardized ideas.
Falling, stumbling, slipping to the void.
My horror... only in the wilting madness
can I understand the true- no, half-true- intentions.
No form to lend to fleeting miscommunication;
I don't understand the message you're sending.
Blood on my hands and filling my mouth,
like a cup, stained inside and out.
A mesmerizing little nightmare, fully unplugged,
leads me- or you- to bewildering picture shows
of life, love, and the pursuit of final death.
Teeth, fully hinged in daylight's offering,
wiggle and fall against a purple, bloated tongue.
A scream, my scream, parts the encircling shadows
and draws the attention of my boogeyman friend.
Oh dreamscape shut down, control, alt, delete it.
No rhyme, less reason, and I'll awaken to a bed
that's soiled with sweat and salty, wet tears.

Great. I really enjoyed this. I think most people can relate to this, the confusing fear that we don`t feel we can escape from. Well done.

A night terror of sorts, soiled in sweat and MAD ideas. It's a free flowing thought put into creative verse; that covers the landscape of your minds eye. Great penning!

About
The great joy of writing fiction is that you get to play God and not feel bad when you ruin peoples' lives. In stories, all the things we detest in day-to-day existence is acceptable; we want drama, .. more..
