Things That Go Bump In The Night

Hazy, creepy, off-the-wall dreams
Nothing is quite as it seems

Everything gets juxtaposed
What’s real nobody knows

Past is present, future’s lost
Must escape here at all cost

Try to scream but cannot speak
Want to run but knees are weak

Alarm clock’s ringing in my ears
Yanks me back from there to here

Splintered thoughts still cloud my head
Thank God I’m safely tucked in bed

Photo A Day Challenge:  Black & White

Ground Floor

Get in on
The ground floor
Begin new

Turned over
In the past we
Can’t stay

Path into the
It stretches

First steps
We’ll see where
We’re led

Time to move
With compassion
And care

The weight of
The world
All together
Can bear
