What Dreams May Come

In the wee hours

The dreaming comes,

When feeling toils to better thought

And hope makes her way to bed,

While Demons sink into Hell

Carrying fragile souls aloft,

Where terrors of the day lurk

In corners,

Awaiting their marching orders,

A legion of anxieties

Will take over from

Delight

In the middle of the night.

For Fun

    Ah the cursed demons who haunt our sleep. How do they even know when to taunt and jeer, I guess they never sleep. Beautiful poetry.

  • One cycles into the other, the ups & downs of falling asleep never knowing quite where it will take us.

    The tag🀣 "For Fun" Sorry, I saw it and it made me giggle. Anyway- This. Wow. THIS. Hannah, you really took this challenge to the next plane. This is like, expert-level poetry. Idk if that makes sense? I just feel like this is something one of my English teachers would've made us study and then revealed that it came from some big name poet. Compliments. All the Compliments. And accolades!πŸ‘πŸΌ

    Well now. This typifies both my views of sleep and after dark time. This was beautifully written and saw what you said to Rachel about your partner. haha. It makes sense and has clear interpretations both ways and uses just the right amount of words. Genius work, really. I feel kinda proud of you for this one!

  • This was so brilliantly executed! I loved this so much!

    Exemplary! This is what I would call a great inverse. I still can't do them.
