Sweet Nightmares...

Sweet Nightmares...

A Poem by Hamza
"

There are always those few nightmares that make us smile... Not because they were funny, but when we realize we're alive, we feel alive ..

"
Rasping voices from the slippery steep
converge behind your wary eyelids,             
this time blades sparkle it right.  
Robes swell from your own ghoul,
boundless, slow motion drives,
through that cloud of winged snakes,
the rough beast rises, arms up and wild.
High winds storm the night, each gust 
a knife wound, each pause 
turns you in your sleep.
Morning lands on both knees
bounces twice�" are you alive?

the last stanza, a two liner, a master class and the art of a true visionary.
that is how i see it.

Lovely little piece Hamza, again you convey good emotion and a picture in a short piece. I do like the final stanza.

thank you very much .. :)
A perfect summation of this particular state of mind...I know I'm certainly more happy than horrified when I've awoken from a nightmare...and I have recurring nightmares so I'm really used to it now haha

This is very good, and also gave me the chills. I hate nighmares but in the end I do smile in reliefe that i am still alive and that I was just dreaming.

thank you for the words though !!
Very good!!! At first I was a little thrown off by the title. I just didn't know how you were going to make it work...but you did it :D Your words fixed the images into my mind as clearly as if I were seeing them instead of reading them. Good job!!!!
