The Dreaming World

A nightmares tale

In my dreams, I saw a curious sight-

A world both dark and full of light;

Where creatures lurked both near and far,

And shadows danced beneath the stars.

The air was thick with mystery

As I wandered aimlessly

Through streets that seemed to have no end

Where secrets lay around each bend.

I saw a man with eyes ablaze-

Whose face was etched with ancient ways;

He spoke to me of hidden lore

And secrets of a world before.

But as I listened, spellbound, enthralled

I woke to find the dream had dissolved

Leaving only scraps of memory

And a sense of strange abnormality.

Yet even now, as I lay in bed

The dream lingers in my head

A puzzle piece that I can't place

A strange and eerie, haunted space

So I lay here, wide awake

Hoping that my mind will shake

The remnants of this eerie dream,

And all its bizarre, unsettling themes.
