Dream Fear

My simple yet complicated
Today is done for the day
I did witness intricate plots,
Impromptu visits, marathons,
And deep inhales and exhales
To not breathe out the anger
Irritations, dislikes and disturbances

I lay wrapped in my cloth of comfort
A deep breath and I am in profound sleep
Tired and deep relaxed breath says it..
I see dreams, too many of them that confuse me
Too many characters to keep note of
Many years old; unknown to me in reality
But my dream life knows them like yesterday
So many alive characters

Dreams, they have me in all ages
Even the ones I regret to think of
They reflect me as a baby, to girl
To school time, unleashed college days
To hectic work days, to matured wife days
To loving caring mother and not beyond
Happiness, sad, anger, unrequited love
And all those unbridled emotions…

Dreams; they are unclear, unsatisfied
And terrified I am sometimes..
Could these be some good and bad omen?
That relate with the character I saw?
Does someone want me act like a clairvoyant?
I fear to tell them if it’s bad…
I fear I have no guts to face a dream

The dreams bother me
So deep that it shatters my sleep
I panic, tremble, feel broken
After the long and infinite panting
I say to self, it’s just a dream
It’s just a dream…

Its Sunrise again…
Long wait for another dream
After hours…..

Dreams are ones that take you forward in life. Nightmare too may be an underlying fear in the sub conscious mind. Keep writing.

If dreams were so scary one would fear sleep, yet sleep is inevitable, essential for life. Cannot stop breathing and sleeping and therefore condemned to dream.
