Dreamer’s Nightmare

Dreamer’s Nightmare

written by: Glen McKenzie



a nightmare lived

inside an illusion

the horror of

unfinished desires

forgotten and discarded

torment of unfulfilled

desires tossed aside

colliding with reality

the fantasy is real

the nightmare exists

unlived desires

forgotten dreams

floating ever away

slowly dying silently

a terminal diagnosis

the nightmare where

dreams die; living dies

a dangled carrot

for us to choose

dreams colliding

with reality

nightmares of seismic terror

where dreams aren’t

dreams anymore
