Rescued

Rescued

Nightmare are no fun
We’re agreed.
Yet you love horror
While I lose it
At the very mention!

Strange, then,
How horror rescues you
And you dream
In Technicolour.

And I, safe in fairy tales
Mush and goo
Unfailingly flail
When, finally, I sleep
Screaming, voiceless
Cringing, in a nightmare.

Wanting only to push myself
Back into your arms
And let your dreams
Obliterate my nightmare!

One thought on “Rescued

  1. Go to sleep in a fairy tale
    Dream about catching a tiger’s tail
    The tiger turns into a teddy
    Safe, secure and cuddly
    And a mandala presented in diligent detail!
