I write what I feel…

Nightmare

Nightmare

.

Life blood leaks down the walls

Black shadows crowd in the halls

The old house shivers and shakes

While dark memories keep him awake

Memories that won’t go to bed

Memories that crowd in his head

Troubled, constantly whirling

Tossing and turning

Seeking escape from his thoughts

As the night drags slowly

Tick by tick and tock by tock

And the sun lags lazily behind the clock

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!

  1. And after the nightmare comes the active mind wondering what it all meant.. And you ponder that until all sleep eludes you. Well, that is until just before the alarm shatters the quietness of the sleep that you were hoping for all along.
