The Dream Plunge
Author: SweetVenom


Tall pine trees touching the skies,
With strong winds making them sway,
I was lost in one of the dark thicket of the woods,
In search of a way out, hungry without any food.

With dried pines cracking under my foot,
I was frantic and shouting like a frog,
Soon my throat was dry and parched,
I couldn’t walk much, as my calves soared and legs ached.

With a stick in hand, scantily dressed to wade,
the cold wave blowing over me, I managed,
walking uphill, As my strength began to fade,
I held her talisman close to my face and kissed.

I reached the summit of the hill,
Panting hard for the lost breath, I looked down,
To see the beautiful deep valley that gave me a jolly-feel,
Thick bushes, rocky ruggedness and steep bottom,
made me frown.

I walked ‘West’ towards the setting ‘Sun’,
As I took my next step ahead, I tripped,
As I made a narrow plunge, I was ripped,
Traveling down, like a bullet fired from a gun.

Finding myself settled on the ground,
I was wrapped under the covers,
With the cold floor making me numb, I scrambled
hard to get up, from a terrible dream to recover.

I felt something writhing as I moved my hand,
It was the talisman I had snatched from her neck,
With my wavering mind waging wars at the back
of my mind, I snuggled close to her and went to sleep.
