THE DREAM CAME TO HAUNT MY SLEEP LAST NIGHT By Pete Brammer
The dream came to haunt my sleep last night,
As it has many times before,
For there I am, alone at night,
Locked up, in a hardware store.
A massive spider with hairy legs,
Stares down through large black eyes,
Making me feel the terror,
He imparts to those trapped flies.
I try to escape, but he’s far too quick,
Soon trapped in his sticky web,
To be rolled inside a cocoon of silk
Fearing I’ll soon be dead
My heart pounds loud, within my chest,
As he spins me round and round,
Will I be recognisable?
In the future, when I’m found.
That’s when I wake up from my dream,
Still frightened, I suppose,
In what looks like, a rats nest,
Wrapped tightly, in bed clothes.
