most nights,
it takes a war to close
my eyes, & even then i
still see monsters.

my mind is a cemetery
full of whispers
best not mentioned
(because you'd never
believe me if i told you).

i just want to be free.

to wake up with a
craving for sunshine &
supernovas nestled in my
rib cage, instead of thorns
beneath my skin & bones
between my teeth.
also known as nightmares.

There is so much beauty in this poem that I must say my favorite part is the whole thing. There is a lot of cleverness in this poem and I adore it. :heart:

Even though it isn't what I would call "self-friendly", this still feels nice. Well spoken/written.

I relate.
Really, I do.

They're just... Life bothers me and then these nightmares happen.

Waking up to my mum and dad arguing has never been more pleasant.

Ja... anything particularly disturbing in your nightmares or just... abstract stuff?

((lol I sometimes get dreams that are just filled with shapes and colours.))

Has anything during your waking hours been bothering you? It could be the simplest thing, but it could create a psychological thorn in your mind that pester you while you sleep.

They can be manifesting themselves as dreams . That happens a lot. Try to get to the root of it and once you deal with those issues, it should go away.

Good. In a way this makes me understand how they feel, not just what they feel.

Have you tried keeping your shoes away from your bed and closing you closet? It's a thing my mom does and it helps me.

I don't keep my shoes in my room, and the closet is always closed because my cat will try to get in if it's not. Blah. It's just been really bad dreams that haven't been improving my mood and I'm sick of it and needed to vent my emotions via shitty poetry.
