H A V E Y O U ?
Have you ever been asleep and actually having a very vivid dream
that you can actually wake yourself ?
. . .and really d i d ?
I was at an old, run down country home with the only thing worse than the cracked, paint-chipped exterior being the bare, unkept inside.
I was in the bedroom with a bare-lamp-shadeless bulb flickering on and off. I was talking on my cell phone and there was a knock at the front door.
Who would be knocking at the front door of this old, out in the middle of no where farm house?
I answered the door and there was an older, bigger man in big overalls and he was trying to come in; I walked out with him on the porch and stood with him on the porch.
He asked me about the “MUD BUGS” that were flying around and sticking to the string door. And before I could answer him, there was a policeman that came from around the side of the house and he asked me if “OVER-ALLS” was bothering me. . .And before I could answer him there was a large number of men with guns who came around from the other side of the house where there were a bunch of trees and bushes. The police officer had his back to them and didn’t see them coming toward all of us.
THIS WAS NOT GOING TO END WELL
. . .I wasn’t going to have any of this.
Even before I yelled to the Officer to look out
I DECIDED TO WAKE UP !
and I DID
My heart was pounding and I was sweaty and a little out of breath but
I WAS AWAKE
Has that ever happened to you?
The Dream doesn’t haunt me.
I didn’t go back to sleep very shortly after that and began where it left off. . .
I slept great the rest of the night.
But I am still haunted. . .
No. . .
Not by the meaningless, somewhat puzzling, a little scary dream. . .
but more. . .
D R E A M S
the many. . .
the very, very, m a n y
d r e a m s
EYES WIDE OPEN
intentionally. . .
on purpose. . .
with full knowledge. . .
awakened myself from
heart still pounding,
a little out of breath
as I ran away from them
and never went back to
and seemingly lived
happily ever after. . .
THAT HAUNTS ME !
You. . . ?
YOU EVER HAVE THOSE AWAKENED KIND OF DREAMS ?
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh. . .
I don’t want to wake you . . .
(I hope no one else does, either).
