Poem: A Nightmare

It was a dream
The distant sky
We kissed
Someone was lurking outside the window

Who’s there? I asked
The red-haired man
Chocolate chip cookies
And an empty bed

The water was muddy
Who wants me dead?
The woman on the shore
whispered a little song

It was about her lover
A little haunted boy
A spectrum with empty eyes
The heart is eager, she said
Lonely like a wolf
scared like a sheep
sad, wounded

A drowned scream coming from within
you will never know love.”
my feet are bleeding
I do not know where I am

There are cages
full of nightmares
the sand is sticky
the animals are blind

Sometimes I think about you
Haunted boy with empty eyes
