Nightmare

Again you came to me

last night

in a dream. I had barely

closed my eyes when

your face appeared

unbidden.

I tried to brush you

away but you persisted

like a stuck thought

that quickly sticks

and won’t go away.

So I stared at you

and you motioned

with your mouth

but no words

sounded.

I realised then,

as I should have

known all along

that you were an

apparition,

that I was master

of my dreamscape, not

you.

So I opened my eyes

but there you were.

Again.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
