My Nightmare

I am haunted
By reoccurring visions
Of myself as an apparition
Of my own demise
Forever hiking
Endless mountain trails
Illogically connected
Pieced together
From a multitude of memories
In search of my
Lost love

In this premonition
I am promised
To remain
A campsite ahead
Or one ridge behind
Both of us
Perpetually pursuing
The other

We might stand a chance
Of meeting again
If one of us would
Just stop

But the sensation
That I need to find her
That I need to help
That I need her
To help me
Spurs me onward
Headlong into oblivion
Into the everlasting sunset
Of my purgatory
