Rain Dreaming


I woke from my dream and felt a chill down my spine,
the dark and lonely night was still alive and i felt far from fine...
I took a minute laying on my pillow and then a sound caught my ear...
the sound of a light shower of rain had broke out, and then i remembered... my fear...

I had a dream not so long ago about a dark and lonely night,
one where the rain started to pour sevral minutes from opening my eyes,
but no... wait... surely the dream couldn't be right...?
I walked to the bedroom chair, which was by my desk...
and watched as the rain started to fight amongst the wind like a rude univited guest...
The rain got harder and seemed to pour endlessly from the sky,
The worst bit was yet to come and i dared not look at the time...

You see at 12: 42am is when i saw the car appear and to my horror it did again with a passanger in the rear...
It was my love or at least i thought, smiling and content,
then i see a man get out of the drivers side of the vehicle and I realise what might have been.
I jumped to conclusions and stormed down the stairs, like the rain outside i cared not why he might have been there.
I burst trough the door and then a puzzeled look from my love,
and i had the expression on my face which was evil and well let's just say that's enough...

The odd thing is before i could i question i remember going faint,
... i woke again... still late...

The dark and lonely night was still alive and i felt far from fine...
A sense of de ja vu hit me and then i remebered the next line...
I took a minute laying on my pillow and then a sound caught my ear...
the sound of a light shower of rain had broke out, and then i remembered... my fear...

I'm still dreaming....?

    I love the title and the multiple déjà vu's.
    I did stumble a bit on some of the transitions, yet the nature of the poem may preclude that. The idea of rain and dreams is very appealing. Keep it up! (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
