Maze of Dreams - IT

Alone, I fled from the city that night- escaping problems that kept me awake- to a lodge by the seashore- where an old eerie boardwalk creaks near the white sand beach. To unwind the stress that city life caused, I settled in peace with something to drink. The label, I hide on the wine bottle- denying this habit I need to break. Sabbatical dreams after quarantine- woke me in the morning- with such a fright! I dreamt a black cat attacked me in bed- and I screamed as witches flew through the air. Blood on my blanket, black fur strewed about- enormous green witch eyes glaring at me! "Calm down now- our dearie, it's not a dream!" They told me of the psycho cat's demise! Horns honking and sirens woke me for sure- a normal weekday with clear skies and sun, in this city, my home- glad to be here! My scary night- just a dream in a dream!
