Between the clouds
came a light that gleamed with a heavenly brightness. From it
came humans, but they were perfect beings. With white feathery
wings protruding from their upper backs and faces that were
angelic and glowed with a brightness you no longer saw on
Knowing what they
were I fell to my knees, begging to take away this dream and all
the others that haunted my resting mind. To throw them into the
grim wells that sat in the ground, beyond the circle where the
last remnant of peace and harmony laid.
It was beyond the
hills and past the windmills that stopped moving long ago over
the waves that sway and crash in tune with the world's mood, to
the place where lovers whisper sweet words and the screeches of
black birds drown out their serenade.
It was a place known
as the pond of evil. Where from that came from which the demons
spawn and the very place where Pandora's Box was cracked open.
Releasing all of its horrid secrets to roam the earth for
eternity and releasing its wickedness, letting it spread like a
shadow across our world. This place has become cold from the
inside out. When the heart was warm and when the world was at
ease, those were the times I remember and wish were still here.
The music that used to soothe us into a sweet slumber have become
the ghosts of our happy pasts. Now the only music that will play
is found in a young happy soul.
The men with the
wings looked down upon the tainted ground with a sympathetic look
with lips that shaped a grim line across a smooth face, and eyes
that held a secret I yearned to know. I sobbed on the ground
begging for a better dream. One hand lifted me up and walked me
through the nightmares that were continued throughout my
lifetime. I cringed, wanting to run away from it all.

please I beg you." My past. Was what I dreamt of every now and
then. They appeared around us like a collage never ceasing,
emphasizing every minute detail. I screamed for peace, my voice
echoed all around us. The winged man held my hand and continued
walking all the while gently tightening his grip in a way of
I looked up once and
saw the pale light of something glowing in front of us. Inside of
me I could feel my heart make a flip, can this be it? Can
this be the way out? I wondered, the light illuminated our
path and grew brighter as we neared it. We reached it, the winged
man smiled and let go giving me a small push.
On the other side was
the beauty that I needed and wanted. The green grass, the light
blue sky, and the feel of joy wrap around me. Giving me the
goosebumps and tears of joy that ran down my face, I didn't look
back into the tangle of darkness. I walked towards a field of
grass with the aroma of flowers in the air. I laid myself down
and let my tense body loosen and drift off into a deep
The alarm next to my
bed screamed for me to wake, I slapped the snooze button and laid
there content with dream I had.
