Side Effects

Written by Gail DeBole
on April 23, 2016

Medicine prescribed for somebody's woe.
Could be for sickness, a worry or intense pain from a foe. 

You say to beware of the medicine
That brings on the dreams
That are weirder or bizzare-r than they’ve ever been.

It’s an awareness I lack when I fall into REM
Because my dreams have NEVER followed a logical trend.

Their logic (if any) is hidden from me
Within cushions of context and layers of meaning that bend.

How much weirder can my dreams ever become?
They’ve been weird all my life 
And it is sometimes fun

To convince myself that I really understand
What is going on in my mind -
my convoluted land.

    Gail, I wonder if we ever wake up from these weird dreams, I don't like the side effects, however I enjoyed. LINDA
