Nightmares

A Poem by caseymichelle31
"

A poem about a nightmare I keep having, heavily dramatized of course ;)

"
As the light is consumed
I beg for forgiveness
What did I do this time
In order to deserve this?

Staring up at the ceiling
I plead with my mind
I'm afraid of what I'll see
If I surrender to the night

I get trapped in the darkness
Dancing with demons
I thought I had shaken
I've lost the battle but still, 
I'm not winning this war.

A dream sequence begins
I observe your face
Your beauty slightly taken
By your slow yet fatal demise

You stare into space
A deep and longing look
A stabbing sensation
Seems I've been cut with glass

I am invisible
Sudden pain, it cuts
You've murdered me silently
A sin of the flesh

Our hands touch...
ELECTRICITY.

It seeps through my skin
Sets my body alight
As a match does a flame
The fire fills the skies

Her stare never failing
That grin on her face
Talk to me
Why can't you just talk to me?

A dream or a nightmare?
I'll let you decide
Wear a smile that isn't mine
The wounds in which I confide

Her head arises
Departs, a novel left unsaid
Unaware she's forced a 'stranger'
To the ground

Irreversibly dead

Diminishing a stranger through the power of your dreams, hmn . . . How cryptic. I particularly like how the poem flows, starting off as the protagonist to a dream of being invisible, although not per se. Surprisingly, a touch sparks emotions and you have went on to not only reveal yourself, but to strike upon another, even if accidentally. Thought provoking indeed, I like this.
