A Nightmare


When the lights turn off,
My eyes softly close,
And a nightmare terrifies me.
It brings all my fears,
And sometimes even with tears
I see the night to last.


The darkness inside my mind,
And my eyes look like to be blind,
Trying to find out some light.
Horribles creatures, the death
Wars, my city in fires...
Everything that I don't want to desire.

When the day is rising,
I can hear the birds singing,
And also the first lights of the morning
Coming straightly from the sun.
So I realize it was a nightmare,
Then my fears go away,
And my mind is filled with the hapiness.


But if the reality looks like
a little bit,
It was just a nightmare
Or is that a real thing?

    I agree, the 'is that the real thing' after the tension of the nightmare and relief of realizing it wasnt real to doubting what is real, has a good impact =) (Report) Reply

    It sounds wonderful Lindemberg! I love 'It was just a nightmare, Or is it the real thing? ' Your English is almost perfect. It's an enticing read. (Report) Reply

To that alone;
