August Writing Prompt ~ A man dreams #Augustwriting



Slumbered minutes back in that Hell

Merely images sharpened with echoes

Yesterday’s grind now faint memories

They poison me still subconsciously

Labeled failure by her every word

A mild voice yet fearfully heard

My futile attempts to be that man

Never right in her twisted plans

Her growing list spoken of what I lack

Until that one time which broke my back

These dreams today repeat nightmare times

When I was punished by one for just being alive

Lost Climb~#poetry #dreams #themagicshop


His climb ended today

Reality reminded him to stop

This abyss becomes his norm again

Settle in, enjoy this darkness

Cheered on by past escapees

Maybe- just maybe it was his time

A hope was given

Perhaps his chance to advance

Excited dreams get born

A breath of new air in his lungs

Different clouds, Fresher views

His heart raced with each planned step

The icing being in her embrace again

Unfiltered love reconnected

She would be there waiting for his lips

His dead passion now aflame with escape

Then, the foolishness of want ended

He crumpled back down into the present tense

Facts and failures grounded him

The promise of content always denied to the dreamer
