Bad Dreams

World of dreams
sequences patterns
soothing sometimes
scary always
snakes and lizards
slithering around
waking me in sweat
aching eyes
throbbing head
haunting sea
rising high
gushing towards me
engulfing waves
fear of life
heart in flutter
at times even wierd
am stuck in filth
flowing loos
dirt around
me throwing up
no respite
sequences continue
year after year
marked my childhood
swayed my youth
haunt me today
endlessly
night after night
my lonely fight
snakes filth and sea
is all that I see
want no nightmares
they really scare
me , out of senses
figure out a way
to get rid of them
no drenching in sweat
no racing heart
no aching eyes
Can someone save….

    The reader will discover that this has all the visceral impetus and verve of an early ’70s rocker such Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid” and Deep Purple’s “Black Night”. Commendations enough!!

    A host of disturbing images that contribute towards ‘bad dreams’! A well-crafted, engaging poem.
