The Dream

Afraid that all alone I am

That is when I see her

I do all that I can


Going that high was not the plan,

Heights scare me, till all is a blur

Afraid that all alone I am,


Landing safely fast I ran,

At the horizon I see shelter,

Β To be there I do all that I can


My presence I foreran,

But caused not a stir,

Afraid that all alone I am,


Knowing faces all around pan,

But of feelings could not be barer,

I have done all that I can,


A dream I wish never began,

But reality could not be surer,

Afraid that all alone I am

I did do all that I can.

  1. Dreams can be stepping stones for so much growth. Hope you shared. I am not too good at poetry but your words were so free flowing.

    1. Dreams can for sure, but nightmares are scary, most of the times. Thank you so much, it means a lot πŸ™‚

  2. Nightmares are terrible! I used to have a recurring nightmare that a strange creature (looked like a rather large donkey) was out to kill me. It would wait for me to be alone, then pounce on me. Whenever I found myself alone in a dream, I knew the creature would make a sudden appearance. Scary!

    1. They are! Even mine is scary though it starts off nice, and I never know where I fall so….I keep wondering. That is the worst ever, to be left hanging by a cliffhanger in your nightmare.

  3. Nightmares never last..nicely done, Jaibala!

    1. Yes they never do. Thank you so much Uma πŸ™‚

  4. I used to have a recurring nightmare too…then a friend suggested, that I switch off all electronic media, keep away print media (even books and newspapers), at least an hour before I go to sleep and use that last hour to just chatting pleasant things with family or friends…it helped!

    1. Glad that your nightmares stopped. Will sure try this out. πŸ™‚

  5. Like the say, there is always light at the end of the tunnel!

    1. Yes Vishal, There always is πŸ™‚

  6. Nightmares end.. they always do! hugs!

    1. I hope this one ends soon. Hugs Pix <3

  7. It was a good idea to tackle your “nightmare” via writing. And you aren’t alone.

    1. Alone is how I feel in the dream. I wish it ends, as in I see the end soon. And I know I am not alone. πŸ˜€

  8. oh. sometimes dreams can be scary. if you feeling alone is why the scary dream comes, just don’t feel like u r alone. probably problem solved.

    1. I guess nightmares breed on loneliness, and you don’t have to be alone to be lonely, and that is not a easy problem to solve. I, on the other hand know that I am not alone. I guess a dream is a dream and nothing much. πŸ™‚
