74 (who?)

My Nightmare
It is half past twelve
And Im tossing in bed
I think I hear you
But that is all in my head

This is the third night this week
I toss and wake to my screams
In my nightmares you live
When once you were part of my dreams

I grip my pillows tight
And cry out so many tears
But if I close my eyes again
The blackness returns me to my fears

In my dreams
I can see the pain
As death took you from me

I relive that dreadful hour
Every night
And this is what I see

There I am
Holding you in my arms
And giving you a tender kiss
When from behind
A monster with a knife
Stole my love and bliss

He stabbed you deep in the back
With a knife as dark as his eyes
And falling to your knees
My heart broke
And life lost all her ties

I try to comfort you
In my arms
Tell you everything will be okay
But that monster laughs
And kicks me in the face
Before running away

I crawl to crouch over your body
Holding you tight to my chest
You try to speak
But the blood trickles
Down your mouth
Slowly drying

I see the pain in your eyes
As you struggle to talk
I hold back my tears
But before you can say a thing
You die in my hands
As the blood smears

There upon the floor of the park
I wail and pour out my soul for you
And before the ambulance comes
To take you from me
I lay my head on your chest
And there I die too

A piece I started a couple of days ago just evolved into this as I wrote it this morning. It deals with loss and pain which I am feeling now for unrelated reasons. I hope you like.
