Nightmare

By SinisterSkittles

A mind of nothing but pain,
nothing can fully take away stains.
The voices in my head,
ask me why I'm not dead.

"You're still here?
How can you take this?
Your hair isn't right.
Why are you always so dramatic.
You know they're only faking.
You know everyone hates you.
Yet you're still here?"

They tell me there's no point,
They tell me there's no happiness,
They say I'll just be a lost dream
That was never good to begin with....
They tell me it's all a dream,
That one day it'll get all better.
It doesn't... How could it when everytime it comes back?!
How can I get away from the voices that are in my own head?!
But no... It's just a dream....

"You'll never wake up..."

Just a dream...

"I know you're already crying" as they laugh...

Just a dream....

"You always were weak!"

IT'S JUST A DREAM
And maybe that's why no one can hear my screams....

    "They"... Forget what "they" are saying and focus more on the "I".

    I sympathise with you on the feeling undeserving of life; and as you grow older, wisdom will replace that uncertainty lingering within you. Many mixed emotions to struggle with in this piece and it cuts deep. I say, hello there poet and welcome to the valley. Bows- ♥ Scholar

    Sadly there is no escape from those voices, whether it be a dream (nightmare) or real life. Best thing to do is try and drown them out. Ignore them as best you can...unless they tell you to kill people then surrender to them o.o Anyway, nice write and welcome to DP.

    lol sometimes they do, i've been like that since like 4 years ago, and it's been off and on sense, but this time it feels different honestly...

    I've gotten used to mine over the years. I'm sure you will as well, just give it time. Even if they seem different this time, they'll go back to how they usually are or you'll end up ignoring them without realizing it.
