The Rain Came Pouring This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

The rain came pouring
As they lay snoring
Deep in dreams
Of shouting and screams
Children crying, bridges falling
Cars crashing, French fries crawling
People flying
People dying
All through the night
They toss and turn in fright
Dreams can be scary, wonderful places
So many new and exciting faces
Terrifying, beautiful, scary and bright
All of these things create a fight
Reality, dreams, reality, dreams
Your head screaming with what’s right and wrong
Going on for far too long
Tossing and turning late at night
Waking up from a terrible flight
Dreams become reality
Reality becomes a dream.

I liked it... It was just all very confusing in a not-so-confusig way? Ha but I'm thinking it can be tweaked a little to make it EVEN better.
