Just a feeling

“Your nightmares follow you like a shadow, forever. ”

Aleksandar Hemon, The Lazarus Project

I open my eyes to the new day

You leave me reeling


A riptide trapped in my skeleton

From the depths of my stomach to the well in my eyes


An inconspicuous pull

Tugging at my strings


Carving a frown into my smiles

Dimming my word, inside and out


What clutching roots sprung you on my helpless mind?

What ceaseless fabrications doomed you sorrowful?


You are just a typical dream

A fleeting image, impregnating a second


The image is gone

Not even etched into visualities of a memory


But the feeling persists

Wrenching my gut


Pulling my strings

Have you ever had a dream that you don’t remember, but it leaves you with a glum feeling all day?
