Temporary Nightmare
Once, I had a d                       
                                  m that I was in a box;
Without any windows, doors, or locks.
So I sat d
                    n with nothing to do
And wathced as the walls constantly GREW.
GrEeN aNd PuRpLe LiGhTs PuLsEd On ThE rOoF.
                                                        o  o
Then in front of me was a golden p        f
Of the thickest smoke to infiltrate the air.
I scanned the darkness and was met with a stare.
In the mist stood a cyclops with a s           e
                                                       m       l
                                                            i       so bright,
That it illuminated this room of so great a h
                                                       p  h
In his hands he held a large glass s      e  
                                                       e   r 
Which suddenly, I began to fEAR.  
The reason it caused me so much strife?
Because written on this ball was "Your Life".
The man with bright clothes held it h    i    g    h,
Then he threw it up ^ towards the sky.
As the orb speeded towards the ground \/
    n           s
S     a     e   appeared and tied me d
           k                                           o
My life s     ered in front of his EYE
And at that moment I began to cry.
Through tears I saw him i n  c    h      i        n          g                               away;
For near this disaster he would not stay.
I SCREAMED, begging for him to come back,
But he was l   in the forest of black.
As I opened my eyes I made the remark,
That "Nothing is real in the dark."
Author's Notes:

This is the best I could translate a dream. Nothing lasts forever

Very unique, I love the way you  played with words and their placing. I've seen other writers do the same thing tho, not to the same caliber as you did and you pulled it off amazingly.

What a horrible nightmare. Those sorts of dreams always leave one un-nerved all day it seems. Very well penned...Hugz...Jillian
