Night Terrors

Found this poem from a while back and thought that I would share.

 

“Night Terrors”

The music of this place pulsates

To the rhythms of heartbeats.

The lights shame me into feeling

That none of this is real, but your hand

On mine makes my heart lose count.

 

Elegies written in the corners of crinkled

Eye and smile lines. A hollow beat beckons

Me to stay true; however, I know how this night ends,

With me clutching pillows, waking

From a nightmare vision in my own bed.

 

I scream into the dark, but only silence

Answers my tirade. I hear my heartbeat again

Running away in time with my thoughts and dream

Spectacles again, taking me out of sync. Yet a breath

And a few uncried tears lull me back to my

Blissful torment. An unending dirge.
