There were strangers in my head last night.
For the few hours of drifting into sleep–
There were strangers in my house last night.
But they weren’t actually there–there.
Dozens filled the small room around my bed.
I fought my way out of that stranger filled room
And found my mother, out of place.
She was there but unaware.
They filled my nightmarish dream with terror so profound.
But why? Why?!?!?!
How do I come to terms with hallucinatory strangers in dreams?
