a stranger

my new best friend

a ray of light

in my institution


in the dark

am I dreaming

from talking

loudly stalking me



ringing halls

in single file

climbing walls under beds

my brother’s shadow

talks me down the ledge


hide me

in a room with a camera

where they’ll never


find me


close my eyes

and dream

just dream

  1. LOVE the artwork! Truly amazing!

    As for the poem, I see from the comments it is about a recurring nightmare .. knowing that really helps with the poem …

    I think most of us have one or two recurring dreams .. both good, and nightmarish …

    I’m not sure we’re always supposed to know what they mean …. sometimes a dream is just a dream, the imagination having free reign to play.
