Nightmare

 

A best friend once I had

Yet was long ago

Transformed into someone

I no longer know

A brother once I had

How well I knew his face

Seems to me another soul

Now occupies his space

A lover once I had

Twas the center of my life

His heart he pledged to me

Chose another for his wife

A partner once I had

I trusted with my ware

Took all of my material wealth

Then left without a care

A pure world once I had

Its beauty to behold

Now badly scarred and littered

Its surface bare and cold

A nightmare once I had

But with the light of day

All these things imagined

Had somehow gone away.

I love the wording in this piece. The flow of emotion and rhythm is wonderful. The sense of loss at the end is palpable. Great job...........E

Thanks so much!

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
