Realm of the REM

In the realm of the REM the eyes flitter fretfully;

…………they rest when video clips of the Id are paused.

~

What will inward eyes see in my sleep tonight?

………..Will unfettered views invite horror or delight?

~

It is the battlefield of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde;

…………the victor changing in cyclical clashes of the unconscious.

~

…………Superhero arms slicing through aqua lagoon waters;

……………………rippling muscles rupturing translucent, jelly liquid.

~

………………………………Leaden torso, sluggish arms and dangling, limp legs dragged down

………………………………………..in hideous, murky waters of a slow motion movie.

~

………..Glorious wings of human arms pulsate on a mellifluous airstream;

……………………potent eagle eyes pursue the panorama with exultation.

~

……………………………..Weary, woeful wings struggle to raise a dead weight;

………………………………………..while a cloud of impending doom envelops exposed limbs.

~

The woken world is elated by intoxicating dream residues;

…………or polluted by a putrid, percolating dream shadow.

  1. Love it. Very fluidy and reads well. I only had to look up one word – mellifluous. Doing well kiddo. Looking forward to more. You’re in my favourites now. Loved the photos too – and the captions.

    1. Thanks Lisa – you’re my first official comment. This is one of my favourite poems and pretty much represents my dream state. Having a sleep disorder is paying off. Cheers Gabrielle
