A Dream - Poem by Billy Loving

Lights illuminate the ring
A sudden, painful sting
Gaping of the skin
As blood drips from my chin
Eyes begin to close
Curvature of the nose
Bone that snaps
While I collapse
Vision blurred
Not knowing what I've heard
As I stumble and stagger
Not knowing what's the matter
Much to their surprise
To my feet, I rise
Back to the mat, I fall
As my name they call
I rise again
Ready for the win
Vision clears
Image Appears
A snake ready to strike
Just beginning to fight
Arms uncoiling
Blood that's boiling
Ready to pounce
As the legs begin to bounce
Endless time
A vision of my mind
A sudden buzz
Not knowing where I was
Brain begins to clear
Room begins to appear
Just another dream
So surreal, they seem
I look at the clock
It was such a shock
Sunlight all around
Striking hand, ending sound
