Go by Kelly Clarkson
I love this song. :-) And Kelly, of course, I love her. :-)
So, today is Good Friday, the day when Jesus died on the cross for us. And, yeah, maybe the song doesn't work with that, but I've been so focused today on this nightmare I had last night. I tried to find a song that went with the dream and I actually did, but the embedded thing was disabled. It's called Running Away by Hoobastank. It's actually really cool, so check it out on YouTube if you get a chance. :-)
Anway, the nightmare was really creepy, so, like any good author, I decided I wanted to remember it. So I wrote it down. Here it is, transformed into something called, "Visions of Fantasy."
Every once in a while, I have the same nightmare, the same, horrible dream. I'm running through darkness at an unbearably fast pace that pushes my muscles to the limit, and then I suddenly fall onto my hands and knees. Weight pushes me down so that I'm on my stomach and can't get up. Tears stream down my face. I can't see through the mist covering my eyes. I'm blind.
Somewhere in the pain, though, I hear a sound of life that let's me hold onto my sanity. A voice is screaming into the night. Only when I take a breath, do I realize that the screaming is me.
More tears cascade down my cheeks.
And then I hear footsteps, slow, steady footsteps, coming that end by my ear. I can't see anything, but I hear the click of a gun getting cocked and my heart freezes.
That's when I wake up, breathing hard, holding onto my pillow, and wondering who is the person that almost ended up killing me.
So...waddya think? I wrote it at like 2 in the morning, so I was super tired. Do not tell me it's horrible or I will cry... :-(
