Nightmare

A. W. Nutter Consciousness in full retreat Body surrendering to fatigue Spiritual takeover is complete Viewing a hallway of intrigue The corridor seems endless On each side, doors aligned Physical body lays defenseless Spiritual vacation in my mind One word adorns each door My inner ear, hears the names My image cowers on the floor Opening the one named games This trip, becomes monotonous Too satisfy a dead mans desires Delivered to the realm of the sadist Every night, the same nightmare An adult, transforms into a child As the spawn of Satan approaches Waves of pain, the body defiled Door shuts as sunlight encroaches Screams pierce the quiet morning Bound tightly, in sweaty sheets Realizing I'm the one screaming Tired of walking on horror street Grip on sanity, becoming pointless Nightly reliving the sadists attacks Use to believe dreams were harmless Until seeing the wounds upon my back

Hello Anthony, stopping by to say hi, and take a look at your poem. I was wondering if you could direct me to any poem you have written under tears, or a loss.... I'm sorry for asking... But, I wish to read something that will show me the sanity of others, while under certain emotions... sorry if I just confused you... always~ Linda

Yes, it was a bit of a nightmare, Anthony! - Good written and good fantasy (or maybe it was a real nightmare) - Wishing you sweet dreams in the future. - Nice to read something from you again. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
