dreamed in a dream

dreamed in a dream
the most terrible things
the scariest things
that i've ever seen
in the deep of my sleep
the things that i dreamed
the dark that is seemed
was trying to kill me


in the back of my dream
deep in my sleep
i knew that the dream
could not hurt me
but in all that i seen
i could'nt just be
ok with the things
that i'd seen in my dream


as i fought in my dream
to wake from my sleep
apparent it seemed
i'd finish the dream
i'd fight through the things
the scariest things
the most terrible things
that i'd ever seen


in the midst of my dream
a thought came to me
i can die in my sleep
and i cant fight the things
the most terrible things
that i've ever seen
and the dark that seems
is able to kill me


so the most terrible thing
that could happen to me
is to die in dream
deep in my sleep
where the dark that is seems
is able to kill me
and all of the things
the most terrible things
that i've ever seen
are somewhere inside me

A Very interesting write Dano! Left me waiting for Freddy! I agree with Cas though ... Add a chorus and this could be a song! Great job! ... Ken

I had a dream last night and woke up and was like WTF, have you ever had a dream where you remembered it? some of them I forget but the ones I do remember have me mystified. I fear what you fear in your dream but when I dream I'm like 50% awake the other in a deep sleep. I think that's what dreams are. I just wrote a poem title "Dreamescape". this is a great poem, sounds like a song though.

it is supposed to read like a Dr. Suess story, I did not do it on purpose but it kind of came out that way

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
