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!

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
