Nightmare

This week’s décima challenge from Ronovan Writes is to use the word CHASE in one of the C rhyme spots.


A nightmare blooms inside my head
When I lie down to sleep tonight:
Subconscious seems prepared to fight
As into its strange realm I tread.

As body sleeps snug in my bed,
I’m trying to pick up my pace
To outrun what attempts to chase
Me, but as expected I’m caught.
Can I unlearn what has been taught,
To find a new dream to embrace?

Thankfully, this is mostly fiction. I don’t have real nightmares often anymore, but many of my dreams are fairly stressful, and they seem to repeat a lot. Much of the time I know that I am dreaming, so sometimes I can change the way a dream is going because I can recognize what usually happens but then choose not to do what my dream-self usually does.
