Poem: Living in a Nightmare

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

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.

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.
