I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Living in a nightmare is a poem about how she feels when she is having a nightmare. It feels like her hands are tied behind her back and she can only watch. She stares around but she is trapped beneath the covers. There is no way out.
"Nightmare by Set It Off"
Living In A Nightmare
She stands in a time warp
touching droplets falling from her baby blues,
feeling like her arms are tied behind her back
not able to stop the curtain from falling.
The hair on the back of her neck stands up
as she stares up at the ceiling,
feeling trapped beneath the covers
unable to move in the darkness.
The bridge to the other side
burning to ashes,
listening to the echo of words
losing her way in a crowd.
