Second attempts

This is my first real try at writing. A lot of this has been in my head for a while but as part of a larger second attempt i thought i would try something new, actually writing them down. Read them if you like, or don't, i won't mind either way.


6. Contrast

People assume nightmares are always scary

I've found that's not the case

Sometimes they are full of light and promise

It's waking up in the dark that causes the drop


Sometimes we dream of our futures

Version of what might be

I dream of support I'll never have

Love I can never deserve

And happiness I don't have a shot in the dark of feeling


But nonetheless the unconscious has different plans

Breakfasts and first dates

Laughing, joking, drinking, talking, sharing, hoping, loving

Incredible moments with people more breathtakingly wonderful than valleys or waterfalls could ever be


But now I'm falling

The sensation is terrifying, a drop into a starless abyss

And when it ends it feels like the end, like that was life and this is death

The memory a sickly sweet aftertaste

Melting from the tip of my tongue and leaving me alone

Fending for myself in the dark
