Ode to a Nightmare

Innocent sleep

Unlocking the secrets

That the mind keep

Drifting away

Upon a cloud of

bed sheets

and our mind

lets our body retreat

But what if a dream

Goes astray?

Poison creeps

Into the mind

And to our pleasant

Dreams it is not kind

You cannot escape

your own mind

As the nightmare

takes over every

corner of the dream

Children starving

People dying

Hearts are breaking

War is erupting

And I am saved

From this dream

Or so it may seem

Only to wake up

Into another
