A Bad Dream

“Bad dreams are ghosts of our fears and worries, haunting us while we sleep.” Maria V. Snyder

It all starts so peaceful
It feels as if it shall never end
The birds are chirping, the sun is gleaming
Is this a happy end?

The storm starts to follow while the rain becomes clear,
It washes away my smiles and joy
With lots of terror and fear.

I get a cold sweat, a feeling of sickness
As if I’m on a deathbed
I get this pounding in my head,
While my skin turns itchy and red.

The bright day turns to night and I can feel the monsters near,
I run and hide but no matter where I go
I never lose the fear.

My reality is torn and instantaneously, I’m falling in a never ending hole,
Progressively dropping, tears falling, dreading the unknown
As I look down and see the bottom, I feel the end is near
But before I hit the concrete floor, BOOM!
It disappears.

I jump as I wake up, it all felt so real,
A dream, a horrid dream, is all it was
Thank God the nightmare disappeared.
My anxiety and adrenaline reduce, while my tears slowly drew up
I try my best to rest my head, anxious to just wake up.
