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.
