Nightmares

The nightmare that haunts me

Whether it’s morning or night

Isn’t just a nightmare.

 

It’s a reminder of my life.

Telling me I can never escape.

Even when I’m sleeping.

 

I’ll never be good enough.

I killed everyone I loved.

I should leave to protect

Everyone I know.

 

I know all of this,

Yet how can I?

There are still people

Waiting here for me.

 

Leaving them would be

A mistake.

So even if my nightmare

Continues on.

 

I just need to look for 

The starlight on the

Darkest of nights.

Then everything 

Will truly be okay.
