This Nightmare

Little droplets of my heart
Splatter on the floor
Mixed with splinters
Of my sanity
I grasp the edge
As I sink
Melting under the pressure
A spoonful of acid
Replacing the sugar
Burning my skin
My eyes blinded
By the blackness Of my soul
Veins intruded with rusty silver
Fingernails scratching at
The back of my neck
Violent screams
Cries for help
Penetrate my ears
I am the only
One who can hear
The stench of decay
Seeps through my nostrils
And I am overtaken
With grief
Only to open my eyes
And find
This nightmare is
All too real
