A never ending nightmare

A never ending nightmare

A Poem by SarahCortland

The title says it all.. Have you ever had a reaccurung dream well this ismy personal experience

I can't move
I can't runaway
I know that your coming
I don't want to stay

No words are spoken
Though sounds can be heard
Only a smile comes from you
A single chirp from a bird

All so familar
Yet nothing is the same
My heart is beating wildly
My breathing I can't tame

I know what's coming
I've seen it before
There's no where to run
You eyes are the lure

I wake up screaming
  My eyes in a stare 
I can't go back to sleep
Because I'm still in the nightmare

There are many themes that are recurring in your work. I think that this poem was written before the other nightmare poem that I read, but the theme of the girl fearings that smile is present in both. Very interesting. I really dig this prose style writing, but that's just my personal opinion, i like things a bit messy and chaotic. =]

Great write. Recurring dreams can really stink, or can be extremely pleasant as well. You painted a dark corner with nowhere to hide.

You really captured the emotions of your dream.
I feel as if I was there too.

I like this piece. You keep it coherent and yet still a trifle chaotic - much like a dream shifting into nightmare. Well Done!!!

I like this- the only line that felt "off" while I was reading was "A single chirp from a bird," but that could just be me. Great work!

This is incredible. I love your writing because it's like you've lived what I have and you write it so well. This is just... perfect. 100/100
