I wake up, sweat pouring off my head, my hands clammy, my body covered in goosebumps.
Rain pouring against the windows, belting like liquid pebbles.
A flash of lighting. A face at the window…I’m still dreaming….
Running, pathways, choices, where to go…
Trouble on every corner.
Panic, nerves raw, eyes moving rapidly, decisions, decisions.
Where to go, there they are, the chase. What do they want from me?
Why do they not hear my cries? My yelling, my screams?
I run, but go nowhere, i see them wherever i turn. A maze of alleyways and streets, where to go? Where to escape?
To escape from this reality?
Why won’t someone save me?
A shudder, the world shakes, flashes of bright lights, constriction, i can’t move, can’t do anything.
Eyes opening, being held by my girlfriend, kissing my lips gently to wake me up, oh so blissful. Soothingly says “it’s okay, i’m here” pulling me closer…
Flicking the light off, I roll over, holding her closely. She falls back to sleep.
Just a dream…
Whispered into my ear. We’re waiting…
