Almost Awake

I had an awake dream; or if you will in that middle state of sleep and awake…terrified me. I wrote this to share.

Almost Awake

Almost awake but still asleep
In this state I gently weep
Fear sweeps over frozen still
Within my heart dread does fill
Waking dream a scary state
Not knowing if death is my fate
Violent man with face distorted
Body seems blurred and contorted
Reaching out I try to scream
Try to escape this dreaded dream
Try as I might no sound escapes my lips
Terror through my body rips
Finally I am able to move my arm
Reach out to escape this harm
Hit my wife laying next to me
A sigh of relief I know I’m free
