Stealing Your Reality - Poem by David Taylor

Hope your not sleeping
It might go bang tonight.
A pretty frightful expression
of all the worlds dark sights.
I can only hope
to be the one you choose,
to stay with me tonight.
To help me keep on going
through the blessed night.
Howling wind and storms,
creatures screech in flight.
So many dark, dark shadows,
sneaking through the night.
All your dreams are howling
giving you those haunting sights.
Worms come out your pillow,
mice squirm and squeak in traps.
Wings of bats are flapping,
crazy poets rap.
Such rich imagination
is always at your call.
Why always use it
to paint the dream we make.
What about the nightmares
they also have their place.
And which is more dangerous
In stealing the reality of the show,
the things that we are holding
or the ones we want to go?

    Will I close my eyes and dream...do I dare?

    Dreams are most vivid... nightmares are usually the ones that remain when we wake... but we should heed them as much as they are our subconscious trying to solve the riddle that is us...
