I fell asleep once thinking very deeply about someone I thought I didn't love anymore. It made me wonder if I still don't or what. It made me think of all the tears I cried, yet how happy I was the whole time. So I wrote this. Hope you people like it.

Her Beautiful Nightmare
I lay my head on the pillows tonight
Breathing the air, the stars were bright
My mind flowed to a forbidden thought
And in my heart, reason and sorrow fought
For I know for sure I thought I was done
Fairytale's over reality won
Jumped from the tower ripped the dress
Ditched the crown I was never a princess
Remembered the times the rivers flowed tears
Memory called back the nights full of fears
Remembered the wishes on stars long since dead
The goddess of heartache my suffering fed
The condescending smiles of secrets know not hidden
Pity to the one tired shining jewel forbidden
How long I walked the road to see
Nothing really was waiting for me
Cowered once in darkness terrible
Thunder crashed in the abyss eternal
Till I wiped my tears and said enough
Opened my eyes and made myself tough
\\
Long since left the path swore not to return
Blocked away memories that helped me to learn
A dream's just a dream until you awake
Morning light shows you that it’s all been fake
I've gone so far now scarred but wise
Vowed never again but realized
What happened if farther down I went
Would farther down could it have meant
The happy ending the final kiss
Deep into the night I pondered this
I've broken the chains I've broken my heart
Yet now regrets and wonderings start
If I was right it was all just my dreams
Or is everything not as it seems
That I've broken free but still bound as ever
Unconsciously wishing for what I deemed never
Wondering to myself I thought I was done
Beaten and broken Cupid had his fun
Can't admit to myself don't know if it's true
Have I really stopped loving you
Or am I dreaming like I was once before
Will I ever wake up anymore
Nightmares sweet dreams playing in my head
While the angel's lips smile red
Telling me I've got you I've got you nothing to fear
I know what I'm doing my dear
Follow the path and head to the light
Your hearts in good hands the stars are bright
But the path was dirt and wind blew it away
Lost again I've no courage to face
The rolling darkness with sunlight so sweet
The beautiful screams of a confused heart beat
Still attached or free as a bird
With its wings tied songs not heard
Have I let go am I finally free
Or is this beautiful nightmare still coming to get me
