Treasure Island

Nyrical Poet

Nightmare


There is a darkness that morbidly haunts my life
The ever constant thoughts, the torture to survive
As people gaze at me, they see nothing but a shell
I put a smile on, and trance them into a wicked spell

As the clouds come out, and the moon shines above
My mind starts screaming, as my insides begin to transform
The tranquility of life evaporates under the midnight stars
As I wish and pray for this evilness to end this anguishing war

Blood red crimson, with the constant thoughts of death
Hoping and wanting for a savior to fight off this wrath
Stabbing, jabbing a sword deep inside my devilish thoughts
Which brings me to tears, and leaves me affectively distraught

An angel of peace to provide me the warmth from all this cold
When I am shaking at night from the tremors that I keep untold
I fight the charcoal blackened, slimy oil of constant despair
Hold me now my angel of peace, rid this agonizing nightmare

Although these prayers are blocked, and returned back to the devil
I keep praying to god, please beckon me a heavenly savior
Until then I remain lost, alone, bitter, and cold
To fight off this nightmare that remains to be untold

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
