All My Dreams Are Nightmares

All My Dreams Are Nightmares

A Poem by HadesRising

All my dreams are nightmares of crashing planes Long lost lovers with others and dirge like strains


All my dreams are nightmares of crashing planes
Long lost lovers with others and dirge like strains
Locked in the reality of nothing, I'm forced to watch
My wretched silent screams I cannot seem to quash
Yearning for amnesia, but there's always one last thought
Devilline crystal eyes and I'm by this dreamcatcher caught
Ravenously it feeds the deepest, darkest, hour of pain

Each taunting tale of terror shown burns like acid rain
All my dreams are nightmares and love's a myth
My only genuine faith is in the ghosts I'm with
Sometimes they may appear using my personal traits
Almost reassuring, but I know it's the guise of wraiths
Ringing like a death knell, but it's the alarm that's calling
Easing the dread for a while, come the dawn of mourning
Needing the reality of nothing, for all my dreams are dead

I try to quell my racing heart and find my sanity's thread
Gone, for now, those memories, for daylight's my antisera
Hostilities will resume though, come the next chimera
They'll re-emerge in the night and show me horror and loss
Macabrely leading me, like an effigy, to a burning cross
All my dreams are nightmares, they're from a cliff to fall
Reaching for a silent lover, who's back in another's thrall
Each haunting hour of horror is like those crashing planes
Stalling before falling, then hideous plumes from flames
