‘Twas all just a dream
until it was not
just a possibility
crashing in with a shock.

No need for the fear
no need for alarm
nightmares are not real
until they cause harm.

Still we lose peace
over each wayward sound
we leap up with a start
ready to go twelve rounds.

Rest is a memory
as we find ourselves in a state
never quite asleep
but never again fully awake. ~ Caroline A. Slee
