I had a Dream…

I had a dream today
Penniless, idle,
and imprisoned within
a four-walled self-contain
I dreamed a worrisome spectacle
 
Dark wraiths followed me,
Chased me
and I fled for safety
dreaming of a decrepit shack of zinc.
 
I had a dream
on a sweat-soaked vitafoam
Frantic and haunting
Hovering over me, a shadow,
Behind my left shoulder, a stench, foul
 
Mounted on an Okada
I tried a final escape
“take me to community road!”
my voice was hoarse
the metal horse cried a cry, hoarse,
and carried far through the still air..
 
I had a dream
which suffocated like thick smoke
Down we went, spiralling..
speeding..
for the refuge of community road.
 
past many saddened, sinking houses
of communities on community road
into the heart of a forestland
where there was no forest;  
no end seemed in sight
“nowhere” I shook with fright
 
In this dream, there was no safety
in this forest, there was no ghost
running from them. Running..
until I realised I was lost.
 
My dream asked many questions;
Who am I?
What have I become?
Where am I?
Who am I running from?
Turn the Okada back to my wraiths
Or continue into nowhere’s nowhere?
Trapped,
the subconscious could not save me.
Luckily, my eyes did.
I had a dream today…
