Bad dreams

by Amanda   Jan 14, 2007

I had a dream last night,
that began being very fun,
Then it turned into a nightmare,
When I got up and started to run,

I have had this dream quite often,
I'm not sure what it could mean,
It could be something or nothing,
after all it's just only a dream,

Anyway in this dream I can fly,
but someone is chasing me,
but when I turn around to look,
they disappear and I cannot see,

I often wake up sweating,
and usually I cannot get out of bed,
it's like I'm paralyzed in some way,
I can't even move my head,

You may not understand me,
but when it becomes so scary,
you're frightened to go to sleep,
it's bound to make you feel wary,

I know it is really common,
and I know it's not in my head,
but how do you get stuck?
like you're tied down on the bed,

You're desperate to get up,
and reach out for the light,
you're scared you're being watched
although you know you're not right,

It only happens when I'm worried,
about something in the day,
I want to know how to stop it,
make this bad dream go away.

A little random but I really have this dream and it's the most frightening thing I've ever experienced an I'm truly terrified of it.

    That poem had a really good flow to it and the randomness reflected the changing quality of nighmares. i also had a recurring nightmare that everytime i went back to sleep it would continue. that is untill about the twelf time i awoke from it and i started to get peed off so i held the thought, in my head, of a machine gun in my hands when i went back to sleep and instead i chased it. never had the dream again. but anyway good poem
