Nightmare by Gracie

It’s possibly the best moment of life.
It’s something that you want to remember but easily forget.
It’s the day, the life that you want to last forever,
But it easily fades away in a few hours.
It’s like sand falling through the cracks in between your fingers
Or like the petals that fall from a flower.
Nothing could be better than a dream until
This dream becomes a nightmare.
Then you try your very hardest to wake yourself up.
Pinch yourself, punch yourself, and prick yourself
Trying to escape from the dream that you once wanted to last forever
But then…
To your delight, you come back to reality
And for once you’re thankful for the annoying alarm clock.
Your only wish is to never fall into a nightmare again.

  1. I like the “sand falling through the cracks in between your fingers” part 🙂

  2. I agree with Madison 😀 Eerily amazing. Great job. 🙂

  3. Wow this poem is excellent! I like how you said” Trying to escape from the dream that you once wanted to last forever But then… To your delight, you come back to reality…” That part I could really relate too. Excellent job Gracie! B)

  4. That was breathtaking… And so true, we all try to remember those dreams so faint you don’t know what it was about, but you know it was good, and you try to hold on to it, but those nightmares you can’t wake up from are the ones you can’t shake. Amazing! 😀
