Nightmares

the shadows came to haunt me tonight.

one clasped my mouth, another grabbed my thigh

they clutched my neck, I couldn't breathe.

"Mother! Mother!" I screamed underneath

"come, save me..."

"save me from this ugly death "

and then I woke

my body drenched in sweat.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


so young yet abandoned, forsaken

left to be alone with his heart so broken

held back the tears and swallowed the pain

tried to break out from his heavy chain


his smiles cover the truth, the torture from within

his laughter hid the noise, the sound that's killing him.

no one has known the pain he's been suppressing

and no one has seen the nightmare where he's in


cheerful as how he's been known

but you never know when he's alone

he seeks attention, No. He needs companion

fed from anguish yet craving for compassion.


the man was exhausted

now finally at rest.



. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

"Mother! Mother! they're back again"

"come and save me from these faceless men."

I screamed and screamed yet no one came,

they dug my throat and then I choke

"please save me..."


I never woke.
