My heart beats faster and faster,
as the monster just stands there,
and my legs start to tremble like jelly.
Panic flushes my heart and my
fight or flight mechanism kicks in hard.
I sprint to the door, but it turns into the monster, and surrounds me.
Then I realize what’s been happening this whole time.
It’s all a dream!
I jump to pinch my arm and do whatever I can to wake myself up!
And then my eyes flip open and I’m relived feel the cool air on my face
I realize where I am and smile…
Dog claws pitter-pater in
Polished wood flooring cool under my feet
Breeze from ceiling fan blowing on my face
Covers baking in the heat of the sun coming in from the open widow shade
The mini stereo starts singing as I turn on some soothing music and
Fall onto my bed & drift into sleep.
