The Dream

Cave extending into forever,
A pinpoint of light marks the entrance.
I start, start walking.

Panting follows me,
Trails me.
I won’t look back.

Behind me it growls
Frustrated, angry,
Lacking attention.

It vaults over me
Landing neatly in my path,
A lion.

Eyes glow
It circles me,
Closing in.

I run,
Run from my fears,
From my tormentor.

And again it is in front of me.
Toying with me,
It’s food.

The author's comments:
The cave is my house, and the lion is someone who dominates my entire life.
