Fear in me

Fear in me

Dreamed else

witches dealt with me

as if we were moaning.

with other people

For the death of someone special,

a person close to my heart.

Seeing people wearing all black

Was it real?

Otherwise, it was all on my mind.

I saw myself.

lying helpless

in the graveyard.

fear in me,

as if it were real.

It seemed so.

Black, ugly,

terrifying coffin

in front of me.

Mouners crying.

My senses have already died.

neither my loved one.

what if...

maybe not


My tears were streaming.

a dark-skinned witch besides me.

wearing all black

explaining the cause of death

I couldn't recall anyone I knew.

I was a confused soul.

In my daydream

Otherwise, was I actually sleeping?

Witches and wizards

playing with me.

I awoke exhausted.

Tears streamed down my cheeks.
