Terrible Nightmare - Poem by Sugar Bear

For the last week, every night I go to sleep
I wake up crying cause I keep having this dream
This dream is sad, like nothing I’ve had before
I’m yelling at my dad and I keep slamming doors
My mom tries to calm me, but I just blow her off
I blame her for taking up for dad instead of making him stop
And I’m yelling and I’m screaming, going out of control
And mama’s getting ready about to go
On her way to work she kisses me on the head
Tells me she loves me, but I reject her instead
And as she is heading out for work
I’m just sitting still pouting, making things worse
And my daddy forgets it and goes back bed
But I’m still here going out of my head
My sisters are sitting and watching me go on
They have no emotion cause they don’t know what’s wrong
My brother keeps handing me his stupid cars
But I throw them, bursting holes in the walls
I still can’t understand what was wrong with me
Mama’s number keeps showing on the caller ID
But I’m too upset to even answer the phone
My dad’ll hear it, It’ll give em an excuse to leave me alone
But no one answers, no one attempts to move
Then when I look again, I’m all alone in my room
The phones still ringing, but now I’m too afraid
The ID keeps flashing my mama’s name
So then I try to answer but it keeps hanging up
And every time I redial it rings only once
But she keeps calling and calling and I keep hearing a dial
So I unplug it and let it rest for a while
But the phone is still able to ring
Even though it’s unattached to anything
I answer it one last time, but the voice I hear is mine
I’m yelling at myself through the phone instead
Before I can answer back, the phone is dead
I try to walk out of my room, but the door is locked
I stand there banging on it, but its solid like a rock
My knuckles start bleeding and my fist grows blisters
And my room grows the temperature of a blizzard
I escape through my window, to find a phone in the yard
And it’s ringing, still her number shines in the bar
I answer and answer but still it is blank
I see my mother pull down the street
While another car decides to speed
I try to yell for her, but she doesn’t notice
She switches lanes and the speeders not in focus
Her car blows up and I’m running to the scene
I see her, hugging her, starting to scream
I never told her that I loved her, just want another chance
Then ‘m pulled away by the ambulance
Then a cop try’s to tell me my mother dead
That she instantly died from the blow in her head
And I’m calling for my for family since I’m afraid and alone
But looking around, it’s all black, I’m here on my own
Then a figure comes out of no where
And they’re charging at me making me scared
I’m hiding and running anything to escape
Then I grow cold when I recognize the face
Its daddy, he grabs me and he’s shaking me back and forth
Then I wake up from the shocking force
“It’s ok, it’s ok.” He says “Just a nightmare”
And I’m lying there full of fear
I look around and mama’s there, my sibling are too
Then I start yelling and screaming like a fool
My mom tries to calm me, but I just blow her off
I blame her for taking up for dad instead of making him stop
And I’m yelling and I’m screaming, going out of control
And mama’s getting ready about to go
On her way to work she kisses me on the head
But I kiss her back, and hold her till she turns red
I flood her in tears of a shower
And repeat that I love her and couldn’t live with out her
