I sit and stare
Stare in fear
Fear of falling into sleep
Sleep leads to nightmares
Nightmares worse than you could dream
Awakening with a scream
Scream that escapes me
Me in reality, a ghost in a dream
Dream that leaves me shaking
Shaking disturbing my sleep
Haunting my dreams
Dreams that scare me sleepless
Sleepless nights I've spent
Spent wishing for some peace
Peace of mind
Darkness lingers in my dreams
Dreams that hurt
Hurt me emotionally
Emotionally crying and screaming
This is why I never sleep
Sleep is dangerous for me
I relate to this....after dealing with night terrors for so many years...its a beautiful piece
thank you, I absolutely despise nightmares
I feel the same, but you explained it better!
Sadly, there are many people out there that truly do experience this. I can only imagine how this would feel. I'm glad i don't experience something like this. Good job .
Thanks and I'm glad u don't have nightmares often, they are the worst
Ya they're not pleasant are they? But I find I often have slight control of my dreams. I recently had one that began to happen but I managed to have enough control of my dream to become "mad" at the nightmare and it quickly ended as quick as it started.
that's cool I can do that sometimes, but never in nightmares, just in regular dreams
It's hard to do. I'm surprised I was able to do it myself. I guess I just had the sheer force of will to not let it get the better of me and scare me.
Wow. I know that feeling.
I love how you wrote it! It reminds me of the song Glad You Came, but ten times better!
