Dream On - LGT

It was all a mistake, I dream;
A misunderstanding, it seems.
"You dreamt the whole thing, for God's sake!
Serves you right for not staying awake!
Bad things happen when you fall asleep,
So dry it up hon, why do you weep?
Don't you know God has made a new rule?
I am BACK you crazy old fool!
He has heard you cry out in the night.
He has granted relief from your plight.
It never was and it never shall be;
Pretty nice rule there, don't you agree?"

"I'm awake! I'm AWAKE!" I scream.
(Silly boy, it's only a dream.)

    A very interesting poem on the subject of nightmares. This was expressed very well, and I could feel the fear in every line. A great write, Tim! I wrote a similar poem a couple of years ago.

    A deeply emotional write, Tim. You don't explain much but allow the readers to feel the sadness. Great write.

    Some dreams can be wonderful and some can be painful........and sometimes being awake is the most painful of all. Wow, this is one heck of an emotional wallop, if it is what I think it was all about. Silly boy?, I don't think so.
