When I fall asleep

Waking up in swirls of gold,
Relax and let my dreams take hold.
Silk of crimson, skin of ice,
Something strange, but don’t look twice.

Many clocks give many times,
Random words give many rhymes,
Bed of chocolate, sea of cream,
But don’t jump if I hear a scream.

Rabbit leaps around a witch,
Little bird that seems to twitch,
Mix of feelings playing cards,
Fish tie ropes around bollards.

I see things amongst my dreams,
Groups of splodges fight in teams.
Desert penguins sipping juice,
Vicious wars that reach a truce

Flying high in clouds of pink, 
Made of something sweet I think,
I’m as happy as a pup
As long as no one wakes me up.
