Nightmare Mind

Nightmare Mind

A Poem by Miss Shea

 

Caught in the netherworld of my dreams

The surreal virtual reality where I hide

The place where butterflies have turned against me

And the venomous creatures I have befriended

It’s a place like no other, you can’t imagine

The fear that haunts me in my mind

My sanity and reasoning are set aside

As I explore my nightmare-mind

Bare field landscaped, night-shade sky

Fading stars, a sun-deprived life

My tainted dreamscapes

My never-ending torture

Twisted and bound deep inside confusion

I am a slave to all the illusions

Victim to my self-hating crimes

Nuisance to my own pathetic life

No promise of a sunrise, a sweet escape

Forever I am screaming

Just whispers in the wind

Crazed beyond measure

And out of control

Existing eternally inside these walls

My asylum apart from all the world

Familiarity pins me to this plane

Sedating my mind to give way to deep sleep

Where I become warped inside

Consumed by my tainted dreamscapes

Confined where reality subsides

And releases me into my nightmare-mind

Lets get the unpleasantries out of the way. (Did I just make up a word? Good god I think I did.)

Font is severely small. Had to enlarge. Are you afraid that the world will reject your pain? Are you afraid that people will click on the [x] because it's too long?

You shouldn't be. Far more people can identify with this pain then you can imagine. The poem flows like a river of melancholy before a beautiful sunset. The imagery is so vivid I can taste it.

"Familiarity pins me to this plane
Sedating my mind to give way to deep sleep
Where I become warped inside
Consumed by my tainted dreamscapes
Confined where reality subsides
And releases me into my nightmare-mind"

One of my favorite verses. Beautiful.

Though the text is a little too small for my taste, I am madly in love with this poem. Excellent.


Great Write,
Rayne
