Why do we have nightmares?

What begs the question

In a nightmare?

Do we release demons

That don’t dare

 

Touch us in the daytime

Because we’re too busy

It’s convenient for them

To wait till we’re dizzy

 

What do we unleash

From the realms of our mind?

Why do we remember

Our vision of the undivine?

 

Why suddenly scared

What triggers the fear?

What makes us think

There is something to fear?

 

Yet fear is full on emotion

That requires resurging

Maybe the nightmares

Are purification purging

 

It is preferred that

No nightmares occur

Yet occur they do

To reset reality’s rapture

 

When remote, it is sensed

A sense of serenity

Yet when come they will

A question is about tenacity
