Dreams Of Nightmares So Sweet - Poem by Matthew Jenkins

Dreaming nightmares so sweet
It is the only way
I have been through these feelings before
But never so great
Haunting thoughts a million times more powerful
Than you could ever imagine
What was once nothing more than lust
Is now a powerful passion
Creeping screams through my system
Your voice seems to create
Everlasting visions of you
Your face engraves
In my mind
There is a better way
But to take that path
Seems harder to do than say
I want you gone
I want you to stay near
I have to fight what I want to feel
Because it is what I fear
I wish that I could say to you
What I really want to say
But I could never hurt us again
We must face that we'll never see another day
Time flies by
only when I am thinking of you
Time stands still
As I dread the thought of seeing you
More confused
Than I have ever been
I will never get over
What I consider a sin
The times we share
Belong to the past
And as much as you want it
You have to accept this will never last.
