About This Poem

Dark Hands

I never thought life could have this affect.
My worries came to meet me in my dreams.
I felt spirit hands wrap around my neck!

I longed for a safe haven with sunbeams.
My land of slumber became really dark.
My worries came to meet me in my dreams.

It changed from sunshine, playing in the park.
It seemed in an instant to disappear.
My land of slumber became really dark.

They say in dreams there is nothing to fear.
I felt so safe with the sun shining bright.
it seemed in an instant to disappear.

Will I be lost if I don't try to fight?
I want to struggle back, to a warm place.
I felt so safe with the sun shining bright.

This awful demon I can't see his face.
I want to struggle back to a warm place.
I never thought life would have this effect.
I felt spirit hands wrap around my neck!

    It's hard to explain over typing, but I once had this very weird dream (almost demonic). I literally felt like some presence was pushing against my chest, and I kept fluctuating in out of the dream, into the waking world. This sounds like a similar experience, after reading this poem... it's definitely not fun!

    Hi! Don't let stress at work bring you down, Richard. I know....easier said than done. I've had a hectic afternoon trying to finish up my proposal for my thesis! It's 8:00 pm, and I've got to prepare for tomorrow's classes. Still...stopping by to send you the gift of a smile! :)

    good luck getting everything done. thanks for being concerned, no worries though. I work in a high stress business so occasionaly my mind releases some of the pressure.

    I pray you realize In your dreams, The dark hands were not to hurt But those of God.... Checking to feel Your pulse Making sure You are still alive!
