A Tale Of Two Nightmares - Poem by Seairra Kyger

A car crash
Of a life left
In ashes
You were dressed to kill
But you were killed
In the process
Oh Nancy
They’ll blame him for your death
A life given
For a life taken
Oh the Vicious life we lead

Romeo, Juliet lies dying on a pedestal
A love so cruel
it never clamed to be easy

A hero chosen in the crowd
A heroin among the few
I know these roles too well
As well as many do

“Hey you, ” says a man dressed to the nines
“Take your turn,
Among the plots and storylines”
There are only two acts for this play
The one where you find true love
And the one where it gets ripped away
You and life are not dressed to matc.
And like all great romance
Your heart never had a chance
A life torn away at a glance

Hello Mr. Carton
Turn out the light
Lay down to rest
Fall asleep
In tears tonight
Drink away your mind
Hind behind a drunken stopper
Who ever told you
The Lucie Monette would never love you, who
And who really knows
About you at all
A brilliant man
Hidden behind his alcohol

I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul
You’re stirring up dead shadows from within me
A dream, all a dream
That ends in nothing
But I wish you to know
That you inspired it


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A story of stories and tragic romance. The first part is about Sid and Nancy. We got Romeo and Juliet. And I oddly took a twist and the end of the poem is about Mr. Carton in A Tale Of Two Cities. So I guess to sum it up: Its a poem about great characters and tragic plot twists.
