Nightmare of reality

I had a dream; frightening and terrifying
Horrible sounds in the dark
Brings anguish send shiver down to the spine
I had a dream

Fear of unseen makes me soaked in sweat
A nightmare yet speaks the truth
Horrors and pain of the ordeal suffered

A dream that rhymes with the reality of now,
Will only make you scared for the future
Especially when big dreams are shattered.
I had a dream
