    this was a great poem alison, it kept me going and going, and i almost fell down that hole with you, but phew! what write, and what a nightmare that must have been, you are such a fine poet, this is one of your best, you have wrote so many good ones i can't put them in order. i give it a ten.

    I love this Allie, the way in which you convey even the slightest of things just gives your thoughts a life of their own! This dream.... it could've been anyone's worst nightmare but you tell it with such eloquence! ! I'm very interested in what dreams mean so this one really hits the mark! ! (Jack's version are extremely humorous! !)
    Great read and a great write too, as ever! HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    This is a very interesting poem, a friend of mine was telling me that their young girl had
    a reaccurring dream just like this one, she was very afraid of her own bedroom in the end
    Take care sweetheart, plesent dreams
    Love duncan X (Report) Reply

    Yikes! So vividly crafted. Note to myself: don't visit Alison's nightmares, they're dangerous! ! (Report) Reply

    An excellent recreation of a theme that dominates many recurring dreams. The underlying insecurity and anxiety in this dream in which you have no control grips the reader and takes them to that fearful place. Superb composition Allie. Justine (Report) Reply

    I think everyone fears falling into the dark. I love the way you write! I can really relate

    These deep black holes could be the nightmare of your mother having your tonsils stolen for no good reason! That is not to say (getting myself into trouble here) that your mouth is huge, or bottomless, or...I'd better stop digging more holes :) 'Falling' dreams/nightmares are, I am told, common; the reason escapes me...
    Great drama here, Allie, and I love the 'demented drummer' line...perfectly graphic!

    Fear. It really puts the frighteners on so much, otherwise, everyday activity. Well captured Alison. (Report) Reply
