The Nightmare

v - The Nightmare

'I thought that dying would be
for those left behind to mourn.
The lonliness is but only fragmentary -
not the wholeness of eternal -

The nightmare is being left
alone with no-one; to slowly
watch yourself go crazy -
REALLY crazy -
and not being able to come home to bed
to sleep it off..."
