mad dreams and medicine
i don’t know if either help,
body more a carcass
cast off bedding
allowing chill to bite
soon when a season twists
it will be warm
but till that occurs
those small bugs of slumber
but in my eyes,
quick to become husks
on the breath that creates them
leaving me untouched
alcohol can disperse them
fear of naked flame,
if only what i know
seen from the back of my eyes
those synaptic snapshots
of what was , is, will be
eradicating normal transient thought
more bugs with darker intention
those that bring displeasure
turn night into serrated pain
i want for them
knowing i will be covered
Hope you are able to sleep after your buggy story. She was surely not bothered. I wrote a post about my ex dreaming (nightmare for me) of me chopped all in pieces and I dreamed around the same time of him riding a tandem in China. I called it Surreal Nightmares or Bizarre nightmares and Serene dreams… I think in February. Not a poem but since you liked my one post thought I would send you off for the dreaming one. Thanks and I will search yours, too.Good little nuggets and treasures here to be found!
Thank you again so wonderful that you have explored me and my little page Surreal Nightmares and Bizarre ones can happen at any time i often have vivid ones almost stereoscopic and can provide inspiration
Chris, you really captured that whole experience. Hope you feel well by now.
Thanks Victoria a combination of me and elements of a bedtime story
Torturously good Chris. I really like the sound of, “synaptic snapshots’ – other lines too, but that one especially. Cheers.
Thank you one of those tales derived from bedtime stories to my daughter
This gave me chills…oh, those bugs.
how sleep can get you
The ending takes the reader wherever they choose. Good read, better write.
Thanks Mark hope all is well
Those bugs with darker intention are quite chilling. k.
and the origins from a bedtime story to my daughter
Ha. Sounds like a good, if spooky, story. k.
amazing what appears in your head when creating bedtime stories
