Dreams and Nightmares

Location

Wrapped in warmth you stay

A smile dances on your lips

Your eyelashes flutter as I whisper

I breathe out simple words,

An image is painted.

You’re weak and powerless

I control you.

You drive to complete me.

Looked up to, I am a god.

I cloud your vision.

But you continue to climb blindly

Reach for me

And I will let you fall.

I am your Dreams.

 

I wrap you in cold

Fear dances in your eyes

Tears brim as I whisper

I breathe out simple words,

An image is ruined.

You’re strong and powerful

I help you.

You run away from me.

Looked down on, I am a destroyer.

I clear your vision.

But you continue to climb

Reach for me

And I will let you catch.

I am your Nightmares.
