Treasure Island

Rachel Nichols


A Dream Never to Forget


A demon most terrifying
Would not leave me alone
Last night I ran and ran
For a mad chase was on

His love I totally denied
I was running for my life
Looking for a place to hide
With no plan for survival

In a second I froze
In a whirlwind of indecision
I stood almost defeated
In a mist of confusion

Knew he wanted to take me
In the dead of night
Straight to the other side
All void of sun light

Then a peaceful sensation
feelings of change so clear
Wish I knew it was a dream
My mother was so very near

Oh dear Rachel, that sounds very much like a nightmare, what joy it must have been to wake up.

A wonderful write.

I think you grew up watching horror films while a child.They haunt your mind when you are a grown up now.Aber Keine Sorge..they only haunt and taunt and flaunt and jaunt and you have to decide that its not too much counts in your mind surmount that later it leads to troubles paramount.Let life run after you therefore and not the other way of relativity in the law of motion.Dreams are sometimes bad.I hope you will come round of it.Nice write

Nightmares like this happen every now and then, and it's those memories of those we love that are forever planted in our hearts and minds that save us... Great Ink Rachel! Hope you feel better.; -)
