The Fallen Dream

Beware of a jilted dream.

Innocent she seems.

At first.



To rejection.

But she smoulders and simmers,

 In the shadows of the heart.


Lingering maliciously.

Dreaming of sweet revenge

As she slowly rots inside,

Chafing flesh,

Corrupting tissue.



Her vengeance only grows.

She begins to hound

The soul.

With vicious content

And no remorse.

Sprawling in malignancy.

Basking in spiteful glee.


To be resurrected

In cruel anticipation.

    1. Yes, a revenant of a dream! I feel when you try to kill a cherished dream, it seems insignificant at first, until it comes back to haunt you. I think no one can truly kill their desires/dreams. We learn to suppress and ignore them but that’s something that’s bound to backfire. This was what was on my mind when I began this piece. I’m glad you could sense the darkness I was trying to convey. And thank you πŸ™‚

I’m sure you’ll have a great weekend, family love is the best love. Have a wonderful time, I’ll be catching up on everything I missed. Hi to everybody at your end πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€
