Mankind in Dreamland

Pestered 
and 
pursued
by 
unknown 
foes
A 
topsy 
turvy 
land
where 
snakes 
could 
have 
horns
and 
cows 
can 
have 
fangs!
Nightmares 
in 
which 
the 
day's 
stallions
make 
mountains 
out 
of 
molehills.

A 
chance 
to 
witness
greek 
mythology 
like 
creatures 
for 
real
since 
dreamland's 
a 
place 
for
the 
unreal, 
the 
surreal.

There 
are 
hair-
raising 
scary 
dreams
Beset 
with 
horrified 
yet 
silent 
screams.

For 
us 
to 
wake 
up 
pinching 
ourselves
and 
sigh 
with 
relief 
to 
see 
neither 
tigers 
or 
elves.

All 
in 
all, 
dreamland's 
fascination
for 
extraordinary 
exaggeration
and 
tall 
tale 
imagination

Where 
myth 
and 
legend 
come 
to 
life
An 
amalgam 
of 
fiction 
and 
real 
strife

Where 
assorted 
monsters 
of 
the 
mind
reign 
supreme 
in 
the 
REM 
sleep 
of 
our 
kind

Yet 
on 
the 
other 
hand 
the 
sweet 
sweet 
dreams
where 
fantasies 
form 
mirages 
bordered 
by 
fanciful 
seams

where 
castles 
in 
the 
air 
float 
gently 
down 
to 
earth
only 
to 
shoot 
back 
up 
nowhere
from 
the 
awakened 
one's 
berth.

Dreamland's 
a 
great 
place 
for 
a 
princess
and 
fairytale 
fair
for 
daydreams 
extend 
into 
midnight
and 
linger 
on 
there.

Yet 
a 
quote 
I 
took 
to 
heart 
and 
here 
would 
love 
to 
share
'that 
if 
your 
sweet 
dreams 
don't 
come 
true, 
don't 
you 
fret
coz 
atleast 
your 
nightmares 
didn't 
come 
true 
either!''
That 
oughtta 
console 
all 
and 
sundry
Yeah 
go 
on 
heave 
relief's 
phew 
sigh!

    Really liked your Greek mythology reference; I'm a huge Greek mythology buff and have written several pieces inspired by it. This poem is a little long for my personal taste; sometimes an editing eye can help with fluidity, Overall, good piece. Kudos, and thanks for sharing :)

    Wow! excellent poems with splendid imagery. I enjoy reading it. I like the writing style of the broken lines...it sort a accentuate the inner meaning of the poem. Thank you for visiting my work.

    Dear, nice way of fluency summed up here, please elucidate in verse form, dont ever break the words in lines form, keep them collective.
