My Dream Tonight

My Dream Tonight
Written by: Wilfred Mellers
Monday, July 28,2015

Some nights I wake up screaming
Was it real or am I dreaming
Loud the noise I find disturbing
Nightmares I have reoccurring

Solutions I cannot find
Feels as if I'm losing my mind
Not at ease as my body shakes
Swinging at the air consciousness wakes

Head under water as I drown
Laughing hearty the scary clown
Zombies gives to the chase
Running so swiftly in one place

Sometimes my soul takes to flight
Out of control I rise to the light
Desperately I struggle to descend
Whatever I do I still ascend

Paralyzed I lay with wide eyes open
Whispered voices words unspoken
Senses acute while body is broken
Etherized I remained with physique frozen

At times I dream of a great tsunami
Cleansing the earth of the undead army
Always running yet I can't hide
Randomly searching without a guide

Whatever troubles me I'm unaware
Drifting down a single tear
Silence the influences that I hear
For the voices they do scare

Sometimes I wake in such a fright
My subconscious puts up such a fight
It all changes when you turn out the light
Awful dreams I will have tonight

At times I appear unadorned
Showing up naked I was misinformed
Sound the bells and ring the alarm
For dreams they say can do no harm
