Dream On

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 He 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 was only a dream)

    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.
