Disturbed Sleep

Poetry By: Indie Skreet

Unpleasant vivid dream

And in my sleep deprived state

Appeared to be in ghostly shape

Images gloating of mistakes

Making me call out and wake

Started simply as a flicker

Fuzzy line surfaced quicker

Blinked but image emerged slicker

Polarised by the liquor

Picture of Dad

Void of colour

Winced at me

Blurred to duller

An infant child

Wrapped in shawl

With backdrop of

Bare grey wall

Aura of

Distraught spouse


Throughout the house


Howling too

Startled me

Appeared true

Each monochrome


All alone

With message cryptic
