I Can't Wake Up

by stormingdance (Jessica)   Jul 2, 2017

I thought I had made it out
The other side
Barely scratched
But breathing
Locked away, defeated
My inner demons
But now I'm afraid
I've locked myself up with them
And I can't wake up
From this living nightmare

The line between
Reality and nightmares
And I can't wake up

I can't wake up

    I'm so used to reading your imaginative formed fusions that it's almost a shock to see you write in 'simple' free verse! However, I do like this dark little write; well done.

    Take care,
