Stolen by crystal meth

This poem was inspired by the movies, "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas," Edvard Munch's painting "The Scream," and countless movies and books where the character, at the end, finds out that everything was "just a dream" (or nightmare, whichever the case may be).
