End, Nightmares Do Not

I had a dream
I fell in love
My friend asked me to be wise
“She’s just a devil in disguise.”
But my heart rose above

I had a dream
It was a new start
Nothing else mattered
All the barriers had been shattered
I had lost my heart

I had a dream
Like the one I’ve never had
Beautiful as it was
Every feeling had a cause
Troubled times lay ahead

I had a dream
She turned me against my friend
Swore under the sun
Asked me to choose one
Or she would spell our end

I had a dream
And a brainwash too
Didn’t think twice
Believed all her lies
What was I to do?

I had a dream
I killed my friend
Shot him while he wasn’t looking
Now I have trouble sleeping
For nights on end

I had a dream
More of a nightmare
It was without a doubt
She got the devil in me out
I see his face everywhere

I had a dream
Alone with my past
Safe from man and law
A murder without a flaw
But the curse had been cast

I had a dream
My fortunes took a turn
Lady Luck deserted me
So did she
They left me here to burn

I had a dream
The stage was set
My deeds had been weighed
My death-bed had been made
And they told me not to fret

I had a dream
They offered me a cup
They had a great laugh
As they cut my heart in half
And I never woke up

    I had to share this. I found it extremely powerful, beautiful. This is what brilliant writing looks like; eliciting emotions and goosebumps, great imagery and tone. I love it. The quote at the end really tied the whole ensemble up. Frank Solanki may be my new found obsession. **round of applause**


  2. Love the oscar wilde quote at the end… what I enjoyed most about this experience is… how I “HAD” a dream kept repeating… no matter what .. well written ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t like people who give me ultimatums… have you played game known as Stanley Parable?

    “The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.”
