Can't breathe,

burning, hot, searing pain

 climbs my throat,

 I scream...

 I wake...


Clutching the pillow,

 where you used to lay,

 knuckles white,

 tears streaming down my face,

 I wake...


My memory intact,

 secretly I wish it would betray me,

 as I recall the details,

 the events, the feelings,

 I wake...


I'm alone,

 it's cold and consuming,

 you aren't here,

 your gone,

 I wake...


The pain is constant,

 the fear is real,

 the emotions are relentless,

 in my dreams at least,

 your there...


I return to the nightmare,

 if only to see you again,

 it's only briefly,

 that I feel your real,

 till I wake...
