Dream-Shaped Nightmare

by BookGirl

I was hidden in the shadows,

When suddenly the world was blinded

By a harsh light.

I first saw his smile,

Radiating warmth and a touch of mystery.

But I didn't see the danger in his eyes

Until it was too late.

I was too busy being mesmerized

By the rest of his perfection

As it came into focus.

His stunning curves and edges,

His luscious locks,

And, of course,

That pearlescent smile which first caught my eye.

He charmed his way into my life effortlessly,

And built up my confidence as if it were a wall,

Brick by brick,

And compliment by compliment.

I finally left my corner of shadows

And embraced his light.

I fell for my young god,

My human Apollo,

My angelic vision.

Soon, my wall was complete.

But insults, like blows from a hammer, caused my wall to start to crumble.

I turned to the light of my life,

When I needed him the most,

But instead all I saw was the flash of the smile

I always loved,

And my beauty disappeared

In a cloud of dark smoke.

My wall collapsed into rubble,

And my shadows dragged me back to my black hole of sorrow and despair.

I guess what I really fell for wasn't an angel at all.

Instead it was just a demon in disguise.

@bernardtwindwil Yeah, rambling is a habit. Thank you. Sometimes I think my writing is getting worse instead of better.

This was written in beautiful free verse. You had none of the rambling that into which you can slip most easily. This was a mournful tale of failed expectations. I noticed that in your initial verses that your attraction was physical symmetry for which we are chemically programmed to produce hormone based sexual responses. Remember we have these responses to ensure the future of our species. In short, while you are young love will take on many disguises. Enjoy them and have fun. You are too young to act old. Great job.
