Last night i dreamt - Contest

I am running along a path
Laughing as i go.
Knowing its you behind me
I am tempted to go slow.

I feel your arms around me
I look with some surprise.
Cos the arm i am looking at
Has more hair than you can surmise

A scream gathered in my throat
Happiness turned to fright.
I cried out your name
A snarl was my reply

I was being dragged into the woods
Saliva running from your lips.
Was i to be supper
My heart did more than flip

Just as you went to bite me
A noise filled my brain.
Panic was more than visible
Then I realized was just a dream.

The noise I heard was my alarm clock
Ringing out the bad news.
That its time to awaken,
For once this wasn't the blues.

Then I remembered what had caused
This nightmare of last night.
Richard Attenborough with his gorillas
Was the reason for the  fright.


Penned -  2 August 2013 - Humorous entry.

    I predict you will be on the list. And not just because she is getting few humorous entries. This one is really good!!

    Thank you Andrea, being on the list isnt always the case, as i have found out....Seren

    Ha ha, lol, this is quite the funny write my friend! I've had the same type of dream where I was being chased but then found out it was someone (or something) else that was chasing me! Then you find out it was a dream, hilariously you are relieved, but it stays nagging in the back of your mind all day long! What a fantastic piece Seren, Great Work!!
