Nightmares

Nightmares

Nightmares germinate when thereโ€™s no one listeningย 
So entangled up in the past;
Heart and soul stiffeningย 
Not wanting to be last:
I donโ€™t want to be hereย 
Living life out of fear
Life cuts deep like a knife;
Abhorrence this lifeย 
Weโ€™ll all be dead in the endย 
Life I endeavour to amend;
Why cry?
Hearing this lacerating lie
When your life is slipping away
Perceiving my life turning grey:
Drowning in my own bloodย 
Gushing out making a flood,
Everyoneโ€™s turned a blind eyeย 
Lamenting life wanting to die
Iโ€™m so worthless,
Colossal mistakes being mirthless
I belong somewhere on my ownย 
Drowning deeper all alone;
No ones here by my sideย 
I wish that I could die.

Great write Jamie. Chin up. Sometimes it's good to vent, as I often do. It's good to let the emotions out. Good luck with your music as well as your poems.

Well written! It is dark and heavy but still shows pure emotions.
