Beautiful Nightmare

Beautiful Nightmare

A Poem by Taji Herbert


Tossing and turning

Your mind racing

A dream can span a lifetime




Conflicted with complex context


This can’t be real

Your mind is playing tricks on you

You question its authenticity


A cold sweat during a hot night

Your brain can not compute

Days turn to years like pages of a novel


Creative creations lurking in every direction

A mind is a terrible thing to waste

This must be a beautiful nightmare

I like this poem a lot, it gives the imagination the ability to wander and create details of this 'beautiful nightmare' I personally thought maybe this person was stuck in a dream and lost touch with reality versus dream-life. Really entertaining.

A beautiful nightmare well poised in such a simple yet complex write. Absolutely wonderful :)

Hey, a great write. I'm not really sure what your message is, but it speaks to me of my desire to create writing and music, and having ideas, but an inexpilcable inability to begin. I sense frustration here. Well done.
