I had the weirdest dream the other day

it was dark

and dreary

standingcrowded

at the water's edge

waiting for the impending flood

water rising more

we turn and face the edge again

deep  BREATHS

and we walk into the chilling fog

I am wondering

does anyone else wonder if this is the way to die?

drowning in the water

without even looking back

or fighting the rising water

rising water rising more

is it half empty or is it half full?

me and my father and brother behind me

going deeper with me

and

suddenly

I am alone

falling

sinking

drowning

I close my eyes to not see the gloom

and the emptiness

and I try not to feel

because I want to fight

to strike

but I cannot

and THEN

I open my eyes

and I saw my bedroom

and sunlight streaming ththrough my window

and a shadow on my wall? but nothing more
