I write what I feel…

Nightmare in Daylight


Post No. 844


Nightmare in Daylight


Yesterday began like any other day

The sky suffused with pink from top to toe

No portent of what was to come

Of what I would have to bear alone…

Grossly betrayed by my being —

Nothing new but surely in the past

Pass-ed and all but forgotten

Vapourised and/or evaporated

Memories flooded my brain

My nightmare had returned – again

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
