A Nightmare

Photo by Ru0131fat Gadimov on Pexels.com

Infuriated screams explode all around me, 

Detonating one after another like a field of bombs

Broken sobs fill in the stagnant air like miasma, 

Their wavering notes reaching a twisted crescendo

Cruel insults tossed back and forth between lovers, 

As if they’re merely the makings of a childish game

A devilish dance that carries on without a care, 

Played continuously like a record on repeat

A dream that takes root within a fragile mind, 

A haunting nightmare I can never fully wake from
