Nightmares And Dreams

She closed her eyes

Drifting off to sleep

And she began a journey

Meeting fire breathing dragons

Riding majestic unicorns

Dancing at the ball

Traveling through the woods

Finding a missing prince

But it was all just

An epic dream

And she awoke

To the sound of her mother

Shouting to wake up

“There are chores to be done!”

Slowly her smile

Turns into a frown

And the true nightmares

Begin all over again
