Living a nightmare

Sometimes I feel the world isn't real as I start to fade,
People are nothing but a distant shade,
One crossed between my eyes,
Frightening - full in disguise.
I wonder whether my life is a trap,
I just want to get out.
Whenever I breathe I know it's true,
You are the life I'm looking forward to.
But sometimes you aren't there,
And I'm left alone in despair.
I don't want to live this nightmare,
I want to be with you, now and forever.

Shir Hanochi Claim this poet

"life isn't measured by the numbers of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away". With my poetry, I want to make more of those breathtaking moments, to put everything I feel into words and let everyone else enjoy it as well as learning from it.English is not my first language, therefore I'd like to hear any grammar or spelling mistakes. Thank you all for understanding, and enjoy reading. :) more…
