i learned to never forget nightmares

i tend to dream of frightful things
demons, spirits, monsters, parents
all the shadows from my very own mind

i want to forget them all
but if i did they would laugh in a toxic harmony 
laughing at the fact that they’re not just in my mind

for my nightmares are my reality
a reality i shrug off around others
and plaster on my very own smile
ATTENTION!!!: this is kind of an extension/partner piece with abby.a !! they were kind enough to allow me to wrote something expanding/flipping their idea. PLEASE check them out! they’re outstanding! i hope you enjoyed!

here’s a link to the original piece:

    I love the addition of the word parents in the second line it really lets the connection of reality to the nightmares sink in.
