Another Lucid Dream


As the scalpel
cuts through my flesh
I am wide awake

As the surgeon tells me
that I will survive
I feel the pain
as he slices through my fingers

As I rise from the table
the surgeon steps back
with a fright

I tell him
I've just realised
I'm lucid dreaming
so I'll see him another time

It's now time
for me to awake from sleeping

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
