Time to wake up

Time to wake up

A Poem by SarahCortland

another dream

It is dark
I am scared
I'm alone
I only wish to be spared

I keep walking
a path unknown
help me please
I am alone

A hand
A light
anything at all
I need a reason to fight

you i cry for
I beg for your hand
this darkness
this anger I can't stand

My tears they fall
it remains dark
the light it shines
on this empty park

this place so familiar
yet nothing the same
my life set before me
my heart unable to tame

You are there
you watch as I fear
Your smile it scares me
A single tear

This dream is a memory
one needed to let go
It's time to forget
time to wake up I know

Wow, you've really stepped outside your zone here. Love it! Very interesting, i suspect there's more underneath the surface with that smile that is so feared. Very nice!

Great write. At least this was a dream and not a nightmare.

I think anyone can relate to these fears. Nightmares are awful but if they make you write like this, you almost have to like them! :)

nightmares are always better remembered than a goodnight's dream. could the horror be stronger than the goodness of a dream?

I agree with all three reviewers. Other then the flow being a tiny bit off this is simply beautiful. Nightmares tend to stick with us longer. and they can be frightening to many. Great poem.

This is really great. I agree, the flow is a bit off. If you read it out loud, you should be able to see where it needs extra beats. Another fantastic poem! :D

I understand your fears and can relate to you. I too have nightmares of memories. This is beautifully written, it flows like magic. I really like this. Keep writing :)
