"Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia." ~E.L. Doctorow

Is it really true?
Are my tears real?
Oh how I wish
That this was just a joke
A car accident
That’s what they’re saying
They tell me you’re gone
But I don’t believe it
I would know
I would feel it
If you were gone
My heart would have stopped
Its true though
You’re gone, never to return
And I’m lost
With nowhere to go
I drown in my tears
And choke on my coughs
But still I’m alive
And not with you
Alarms ring
And I wake up quickly
To find the tears still falling
It was only a nightmare

I've had a nightmare where my best friend died and for some reason I was the only one who cared that he was dead. I thought about it today and decided to write this.

I've had a nightmare sort of like that before. my sister jumped out of the car infront of a semi because she felt unloved, then my other sister jumped out after her, then I did. Those nightmares are the worst and you did a good job describing it.
