A Nightmare Scared of Itself

I am a nightmare, sad and terrified.

Will I ever have joy or happiness,

          to share with others?

The heavy breathing,

          louder than it has ever been.

The creatures, darkness,

          bigger than they have ever been.

You want me to go away,

I want to stay.

I am a nightmare, sad and terrified.

 

I pretend to be scary,

          yet it is I who is scared inside.

I feel nothing,

I only touch darkenss.

I worry you won't understand,

          that you will think,

                 I am the bad guy.

Tears come down your face,

          as they do mine.

I am a nightmare, sad and terrified.

 

I understand how I hurt you,

I tired to say I am sorry,

          but it is impossible.

Dreaming is something I can't do.

I try to be happy,

I hope to be joyful,

          but,

I am a nightmare, sad and terrified... of itself.
