POEM 95: NIGHTMARE

We used to talk and laugh

about everything before.

We used to run unclad

flinging shame off the door.

All that matters was how well my smiles lit up our room

and how sweet your voice welcomes me home.

Sunrise and set on our feet

But since nightfall

the world crashed on our feet.

I turn and toss

and scream out of my sleep.

Fond memories replaying in my dream.

Your smiles etched in vampire fangs

Deep it bites, your kisses now

Deep it hurts, this nostalgia.

‘Sighs’

I was broken before

You only broke me more.
