Running Riot

In my dreams

I see people dying,

I wake all of a sudden

to find myself crying.

When I close my eyes

the images return,

and whilst still awake

I remind myself that

there’s no need for concern,

I try telling myself

it’s just my imagination

running riot,

like it always does

when everything is quiet.

But as I fall asleep,

I slowly lose control,

as these thoughts re-emerge

to repossess my soul.

The faces of loved ones

appear before my eyes,

none with smiles

just on a mission to antagonise.

Some are dying

whilst others are mourning.

Now that I’m awake

should I take it as a warning.
