Slowly drifting off to sleep
Head on pillow soft
In my mind the dark things creep
Into my mental loft.
They take root as the colors fade
And swim into my brain
As dream comes creeping, thoughts are made
Of life and love and pain.
Dark images of loss and guilt
Of things long forgotten
The things on which nightmares are built
Into my head have gotten.
No longer do I rest in bed
For now I'm wrapt up in't.
Now I feel the loss and dread
Of the nightmare's moment.
A start, a shock and then awake
I come to and find
My nightmares now have all abate
It was all in my mind.

------------------
Once I was brilliant, now I no longer shine, but the twinkle in my eye speaks of another time.

Great imagery, Robert. I'm glad your "dark things" fade when you awaken...if I could be so lucky, hehe.

This is wonderful! I enjoyed this very much! You made the nightmare 'come to life' with your great word selections!

Thanks all...this is actually from an earlier time in my life, but I still have them from time to time. And Michael, if your nightmares continue when you awake, you were never dreaming....concentrate on the positive friend and you'll find a wealth of things to dream about.

I can definitely relate to this poem!

Perhaps it is how we dispell our demons...

Thanks for sharing this one.

Minds like to play tricks on us. I like this one.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me how could I ask for more?
