Hey Nightmare

April 16, 2012
It's bedtime now but I know better,
If I slip into sleep you'll haunt me forever
You grab me with your fingertips
Your cup of poison I will sip
My mind is now a war torn place
You've reached my dreams and won't let go
I'm tainted now, souls can't be replaced
Happiness seemed so real
But then you took reality away
And filled my head with bitter lies
Morning is too far away
To wait for your demons to leave
This time I might not wake up,
Your demons will take me away
Before i have time to scream

-shivers- .... -double shivers- GOOOOSEEEBUMPSSS EVERYWHERE! Dove, wow you blew me away with how darkness and dreamy this poem seemed. It was beautiful yet disturbing. A royal treat to the ears so tainted with blood. Good work love~

Great job. Awesome word choice and imagery. Only thing I would work on would be your consistancy with rhyming. But great job :)

Thank you. I wasn't intentionally rhyming, so when I did, it was an accident. But thank you for helping me consider it, I really love your work

Hence the category 'free verse' which has nothing to do with the consistency of rhyme >.> Just sayin'
