Fearful Dream...

Go down

Fearful Dream... Empty Fearful Dream...

Post  Sue McDonald on Wed Feb 13 2013, 00:11

Rustling in the bushes
breezing through the leaves
darkness of a storm sky
giving rainfall tears.

Dampness on my face
from moisture in the air
fearful faces now I see
as at the river I do stare.

As I walk along the river
I feel I'm being watched
from the Ants along the levee
to the Hawks up in their nests.

My heart does pick its beat up
my pace is getting weak
carrying all fear inside
as tears roll down, my cheeks.

I don't know why I'm running
just know I have to flee
need to get away from here
as branches drop from trees.

The wind does pick its pace up
as weaker mine does grow
now my pumping heartbeat
really starts to slow.

My mind has a decision
as the turmoil twists around
not knowing how to broach
the torment of my mind.

I feel my legs kick out beneath
from what I thought was walking pace
on my face feel saddened moisture
as I stir from rivers grace.

The breezing through the leaves
that I felt upon my soul
softly touches dreaming brow
as I wake from what I've known.

Sue,

Great job! I was with you the whole way, with the storm, the running, the paranoia - loved it all. Your interesting rhyme scheme offers more of the sense of running through a nightmare. Way to go! Thanks.

Mike
