A Dream of Yesterday

Real Yesterday Nightmare

Yesterday I had a really, really bad dream. I was being choked by an unseen force, and I couldn't breathe. I woke up gasping for air, my heart pounding in my chest. I'm still shaken up by it, and I wanted to share it with you.


I had a dream last night,

A dream so dark and fright,

I woke up gasping for air,

My heart was beating so bare.

I felt someone's hands around my throat,

I couldn't breathe, I was so distraught,

I thought I was going to die,

I thought I would never see the light of day.

But then I woke up,

And I was safe in my bed,

But the feeling of being choked,

Still lingered in my head.

I don't know what the dream means,

But I know it was a sign,

That something bad is going to happen,

And I need to be prepared.

So I will stay awake tonight,

And I will keep an eye out,

For anything that might be a threat,

I will not let my guard down.

I will not let the dream win,

I will not let it control me,

I will not let it take my life,

I will fight back, I will survive.

    Nice poem! And really great choice of image! I don't believe that nightmares have any influence on anything in our real life (well, except or psychological state), but sure thing it's better to be always prepared and keep an eye out!
