Was this a dream

The evenings cool became tempered.
 The dreams made light of the day
 There in shadows were fearful things
 Yet the light shone brightly in the room

What is it I asked that things are unbalanced
 A journey into thoughts, I heard echoing
 The day had been long and unbearable
 Though sanity prevailed in a pureness

I have lost control of rationality I sobbed
 Stop this instantly came loud and clear
 Above the dream state a peace descended
 It drove me deeper into a restful state.

The fearful shadows shrank, light came in.
 Who or what are you? That brings such a peace.
 I heard my muffled voice squeak out.
“I am reality that comes with your rationality”

What else could I think in that evenings glow?
 I woke and walked to the window as if dreaming
 There outside fireflies played as if dancing
 I thought I could hear their wings singing

In an instant all became clear to me
 Holding fear in evening’s special dark
 Would only unsettle the mind in dreams
 I returned to where I would sleep well..
