Inside A Nightmare

A while ago I was asked by one
Did I dream, and if so, was it coloured.
My answer to him, was my dream flow had stopped.
Lost in memory, my life became duller.
The clouds had escaped their jailor in skies,
Surrounding my days with their shadows.
As fear took it's hold, the nightmares began,
And continued to keep me in tow.
Couldn't rise in the morning, couldn't dream in the night,
Each day was a mare-ish find.
This one who was asking, a treasure to hold.
He has given me comfort and shine.

~Wynter


"can a sun shine always
inside a poet's nightmare"  from carolinadreams

*sorry that I am writing so much today, but I think I have the flu and every 3 hrs, I awake and don't know what to do with myself...so I read here and  get inspired.

Don't apologise for writing...every word releases feelings longing to be free...you are a poet and this is your craft. Some people can stand up and scream to relieve frustrations, pain, hurt...I use words to vent...the pen is my sword...as is yours...and don't ever stop.

Tossing words like wishful coins into the deep well of an open heart. R. fox

Thank you Ron, I know they aren't my best, but I am about to go nuts here...when your mind is workable and your body resists all tempations to  move, it's a struggle.

Nice to be bantering back and forth as my sun sets and the dark is beginning to blanket me once more.

I dig this - has an ethereal/dreamy quality.

Wynters blanket will lay to rest
Silent dreams of ivory white
Pure and serene
As indigo shadows of evergreens
Dappled the blue tinted drifts
A pale silver moon settles quietly
Within the ebony cape of the heavens
As sleep settles upon her weary eyes
Midnights rainbow glows.

feel well. Ron

inside the factor of last lost themes
lives on creme dreamt dreams
shallow scallions of scolded young men
enjoy dazzling misleading pens
we weren't full so much as to desire
yet we could draw our own ire
we staved off the feeling within
we began again

a coincidence that this poem has been brought forward at this time...

what's that saying?

It's where I began and where I end...come full  circle
Thanks for reading

Seems all things happen for a reason, and certainly believe in your instincts Maureen.  I enjoyed this - had not read it before.  Your mind was working and your body shut down, and up here I have the opposite problem   Season's Greetings to you.

can a long lost man
consider

can a long last man

receive

had he seen the strife
had he cost
had he thought
had she fought
had it seemed
again
should she be
should he be
thankful

J.L. Koehler 2006
