The Pain Still Real
19 October, 1999
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)

vinebar

I wake in the night as the dreams still haunt
Bringing back memories of old
The new found strengths seem to fade
As the memory of the past makes my heart cold

My life has gone on
New beginning were had
Past is behind me so I don't understand
Why these lingering dreams are so bad

I know of it being a traumatic time
Past is what I thought that it was
A part of me always, its now who I am
I sit here my mind all in fuzz

I shake it away and try not to think
Only a dream from the past
Furious dragons just lifted sleeping heads
Reawakened the nightmarish memories so fast

Before I again close my eyes to sleep
I pray the lord these dreams to take
To let sleeping dragons remain where they are
To let the dreams fade back into the darkness for my sake

------- Author's Notes -------

I thought the cave of her dragons was behind me and stoned up well shut. But again the flames were breathed back to reality in the form of my dreams. And for two nights have invaded me. I again loose sleep that had been so peaceful lately. I wish I could put my finger on the trigger of my mind and understand where they came from this time....

I Feel The Same Way

I feel the same way. I have these really bad dreams about my ex. The break-up wasent bad, but when i got with someone else he made and is still making my life a living hell.

Do not punish yourself

Learn to truly love and appreciate who you are. You are wonderful, kind and loving person NOW, today. To ponder on the past is to suffer, be miserable, nonforgiving and not yourself. Focus on the present and move on with the treasure of yourself. It may mean you will be alone for awhile but thats ok, develop and grow and do not look back. No one is punishing you but you. Let it go, it's a process but do it. Me too
