Fantasy Dreaming

Trying to wake up my brain cells

why am I dreaming about this

stories like this upset me, they say

Fantasy is an escape from reality

Living under a mountain, all my life

been wary of it, never climbed ever

Yet, here I m dreaming walking a trail

so if fantasy is an escape from reality

Why a spirit sitting on top watching me

Waiting for me to trip, fall over the edge

that was my lifetime dread of falling over

I do not like edges with long drops below

Sleep offers us a retreat from the world

Some nightmares are real, this is true

Time heals most wounds, not this one

Imagination, no, I need inner peace.

  1. Hahaaaa… Oh yes, Elsie, I too find long drops a little daunting!
    I can be in a plane and feel quite safe. But, put me on a cliff without a barrier.. ooooh! Perhaps it’s just self perseverance? 🙂

    • Oh, you are so right, I think it gets worst as we age, especially if I think about something from the past during the day, you can guarantee I will dream about it that night, sometimes I do learn more about the subject.
