Haunting Dream of Past

Haunting Dream of Past

Many, many years ago,
A little girl I was,
With a reoccurring nightmare,
That was never understood.

Every night, a month straight,
I had this same dream,
More and more it progressed,
All I could do was scream.

Always started the same way,
With three people in a car,
Never having any faces,
So I did not know who they were.

The clouds were so dark,
As if there was a storm,
Nothing but curvey turns,
Like an old country road.

Looking at empty faces,
As if I was one,
Laughing and having fun,
How can it go wrong?

All of sudden, thunder roars,
As lightning filled the sky,
Screeching noise and a crunch,
Echoed through my ears.

Jumping up from my sleep,
Shaken with fear,
Not knowing what it meant,
Really scared me so.

Don't forget it progressed,
It started the same way,
Exactly the next night,
I know it sounds very strange.

So many empty faces,
Surrounded all around,
Almost like they were sad,
And that's how it all ended.

You haven't heard, not just yet,
The strangest part to come,
for the dream came to life,
And we lost a loved one.

The reason I share it now,
Here comes the shock,
The first part I dreamt last night,
Only this time there was two.

Wow... I had such a dream (different narrative) many years ago about one of my family members.. and we lost him the way I dreamt.. I can relate to this and it's utterly terrifying. You even had the dream a lot... I'm so sorry for your loss ๐Ÿ˜ž

This is a brilliantly captured narrative with chilling imagery throughout. Amazingly written๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Exactly!! I feel the same, I am usually scared to even share it because of those kinds of reactions.. so it's indeed amazing to find someone that has been through the same! There's so much more to this world than most see..

That there is, but I for one have never been afraid to share it I I like people thinking I'm crazy it just means I'm not boring but I have realized that when you open up to people about this they tend to open up about their experience and you can see the relief they have when realizing they are not crazy.

That's a great way to look at it! I just now, with writing and with meeting people like yourself have started allowing myself to open up more. So very true, when you share yours others will comfortable enough to share theirs! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Awww! ๐Ÿ˜Š That's an amazing way to remember it. Uniqueness is what I appreciate in others, so it's good to see it in myself too (and appreciate it existing). Thank you for this! Bless you
