Dreams - Poem by Obinna Nwerem

Nightmares am having every night
With every vain in my body
I cry out from the dark world
But no one seems to care
Bone chilling arctic breeze
Razor sharp slices as it blows
Travel alone on devils road
Dark shadows surrounds me
But I have been here before
I cry out again with a scream
But all my years I have been here
But all my years I have been shamed
My blood vivid images they paint
At night her soul visits me
Says I keep her alive in poetry
I know I will live a million years
Cause I have died a million deaths
Each time that I meet a loved friend
They leave me at the mountains foot
So bitter is this life that we live
Speak will I of my most deepest thoughts
Let it hang in the air for the deaf to see
Whisper it like a song to the blind
For the only time we live is in our dreams.
