Mental Health Poetry: Nightmare, by Angela McCrimmon

I woke up so many times last night,

I felt such fear and I felt such fright,

My dreams they held a world of pain,

Please help before I go insane.

Sleep is the only time that I,

Can cling to life, no urge to die,

Please do not steal from me,

The only respite that I see.

I feel my tummy tied in knots,

My head spins with a million thoughts,

Not sure how much was a dream,

I woke myself with such a scream.

I tried to reach but couldn't grasp,

I was falling down and falling fast,

I willed myself to wake for good,

For at least that way I knew I could.

Grasp reality and let it go,

But now it seems I'll never know,

My bedsheets tell me it is true,

I had another dream of you.

- Angela McCrimmon
