Nightmare – Written Monday 28th September 2006 (Aged 31)


another nightmare
i woke up
and as the canvas
began to fade
as the colours
of the nightmare
began to run and melt
i asked to be held
why does it happen
why do they invade
my precious sleep
i see them coming
i feel the rush
of ghostly air
and then they are there
another nightmare
someone said
we are just a gateway
and some of us
are old deep inside
some of the dead
are looking for a ride
another nightmare
