Dreamland/ Poem by MwsR
You once took my hand,
You said you would take me away to that happy place.
Promising me that what was going on was a total nightmare and not real
But I was the only who could see and feel it.
You whispered right to my soul
Told me that bad people are only in the movies
But I found no comfort in those words
Instead I lived without comfort for many years.
You said there would be rainbows after the rain
Sent me wishing along a path of make belief,
Showed me nothing and still wanted me to follow you
To believe you, and I willingly was naïve.
Turns out that behind every dream I ever dreamt of happiness,
One of sorrow interrupted me.
I found nothing to help
No one in my world to grab a hold and not let go of me
All I had when it was said and done was a need to flee.
I stopped dreaming for it left me falsely in a daze of happiness
Instead I stopped listening to you and faced the awful dread.
Don’t bother me anymore!
I can’t live in that Dreamland.
