Frightful Night

by Sheri White

 

When I go to sleep at night

My dreams are scary,

Fraught with fright.

Wasps get tangled in my hair,

Clowns frolic fiendishly

In the frigid, dark air.

Goblins through my window peer;

A man with an axe

Knows what I fear.

But I'd never trade these dreams of mine

For the blissful dreams

Most others find.

These are dreams that help me to write;

Inspiration for stories

Best read by bright light. *
