[Poetry] A Dream Within a Dream

1:43amStaring at the darkened ceiling, I lay here
Lips trembling
Body shaking
Smoking Kools after Newport packs
After Marlboro packs
Silently staring and smoking
After each long nicotine drag,
Another tear vibrates down my face and gets lost in my jungle of unkempt hair
I close my eyes in an attempt to forget

12:15amThe hollowed S&W drops, burning the tips of my fingers
My throat dries as his body slumps to the bedroom floor
Blood pools of pitch black form next to the fallen soldier
Three to be exact
Head... Heart... Dick...
Each body part he used to hurt me
I felt no remorse until the gun thudded on the carpet
Then I realized
Our child will have no father
Or mother
Red and blues surround me
Those fucking neighbors

1:52am
Awakened and looking at the darkened ceiling, I lay here
Lips trembling
Body shaking
The bright red one five two blink brightly beside my bedside
He lays here next to me
Masculine arms encircle my waist
Below my pregnant stomach
I smile and kiss his lips
He better be lucky it was just a dream

Words && Sounds
Sincerely,
Phoenix Nicole
