A strange dream I had last night...


Dream of Doom...

Strange dream I had last night, my love
I was alone in a vast wilderness,
Not a soul was anywhere in sight,
All around was dark and dun...
Gloom was settling deep into my soul,
Chill was begining to desolve my bones;
Not even a streak of lightening to show,
Where was the way and where I should go?

Suddenly, I saw a shadow ahead,
Like an apparition it sped away...
I started following it to ask the way,
Desperately I tried to keep up with it,
But the distance between us grew instead,
Till the earth suddenly gave way under my feet

And I was sinking into a pit less abyss
I shouted for help with all my might,
The shadow then turned and gave me a smile,
An eerie smile;
To my horror, I suddenly realized:
It was
You!!

A very eerie poem! Such a dream would not seem to bode well for a relationship, would it?
