Nightmare

Nightmare

A Poem by Kerri Hart

When you go to sleep,

the sea of your thoughts writhe,

and froth,

circling, and jittering,

until they become alive,

scratching at the banks,

of their enclosure,

letting the debris,

create films,

films of so many things,

death and decay,

skulls and bones,

snakes and ghosts,

and when the sea settles,

so do the films,

and your mind eases,

from its pain,

of nightmares.

Debri should be debris, and writh should be writhe by the way...just letting you know :L
Liked the metaphorical use of dreams being like movies...it just creates a nice perspective =]

"writhe". I hate nightmares. I had one about zombie smurfs and they were everywhere! I woke up before they could get past my knees. I got chills just from thinking about it. Yikes! Good description of how the mind does this crud though.

when i woke up with a nightmare i know its hard to go back to sleep, but
what i do is re dream it and change the course of its flow or so i assume
yet i know we have the power if we just believed..the mind is a powerful tool.
great!
