A Poetic Nightmare

When Bad Dreams Come True

Who knew bad dreams could come true too

I found that out the day I lost you

I lost my mind when I lost you

Brokenhearted, I watched the skies turn black

Knowing I'd never forget you, and you'd never come back

The best I ever had gone for good

I remember everything, In the most vivid, riveting detail-

New years day, the day you left me, now to me is a traumatizing memory

Celebrating my heartbreak anniversary with the most toxic positivity

Bleak and bittersweet, I'm drinking only black tea

Thinking back, on the past we had-

Fantasies turned into the saddest stories and dreams turned into the worst of nightmares


This was originally written this three years ago, but I've changed a few things. The cover image, in particular, because I wanted it to be more similar to the cover image of 'A Poetic Nightmare II: Killing Me Softly.'
