Nightmare

Anger and frustration sweeping over me
Like waves crashing upon the rough edges of cliffs of despair
Life throwing challenge after challenge, never ceasing
I duck, dodge, weave, and run
But to no avail whatsoever
Fear creeps under my skin, talons scraping my veins as it progresses
Images flash in front of my eyes
Things no other person should see
I am plagued with these cursed pictures
Why must I alone experience these?
What have I done to anger Nyx and Erebus?
How can I atone for what I seem to have done?
Whatever it is, please for the sake of my sanity
Banish these raw emotions. Let me love my one and only
Without having to worry about emotions taking me
I wanna just be alone with my Esther
Is it too much to ask?
To have my nightmares become dreams of her?
Tonight I just have to see.
