What Is A Nightmare - Poem by Val Brooklyn Rogers
Now then, Let us begin.
A nightmare is not a FRIEND
But a foe that over flowed.
If this be true by decree, a nightmare
Is a recluse enclosed in pain. What
Is a nightmare when a nightmare
Is sustained in court ENGRAINED?
Wars fought insane
That is a nightmare.
With dreams it would seem that
Nightmares are simple scapegoating
Blamed then be gentle.
Nightmares are strange and rekindle
Flames of fire ignite accidental a
Shall we include and make good use
Of what has been induced? A nightmare
Is to loose your BELOVED in an
A nightmare is a scheme of the mind
Against REALITY when it's telling
You it's not possible.
A word of advice: Do think twice
Before falling asleep at night.
Better to always keep awake until
Could it be, you think just a wink
Or a blink of SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
MAYBE UNTHINKABLE episodes of life?
Now let us endure. A nightmare is
An insane dream on steroids?
Is that mental? Let us think and
Rethink this. NOTHING of a nightmare
Shall be relinquished. It exist.
Do still enlisted. Now, let us deduce,
A nightmare is a shell of a dream which
Fell from HELL IN an UPSIDE DOWN WORLD.
