Strange and Confusing

by Jean Mollett

Early this morning I woke up, glanced
at the clock. It's too early to get up,
I felt myself drifting off to sleep again.
I had a dream, that became a nightmare.
Strange and confusing.

In my dream for some reason, I had to
make a short trip. I decided to take a
bus, it would be there in the same day.
But I would arrive late in the evening.
Strange and confusing.

It was so confusing in my dream, every-
thing was going good. 'Til the bus drivers
changed. They announced each town, people
getting off and on.
Strange and confusing.

I noticed some people reading, some napping.
So, I decided to relax and take a nap. I heard
voices that were very different, from some other
state or country.
Strange and confusing.

It was time for me to get off at my stop,
I thought. Where am I? How did I get here? I
found myself somewhere, I couldn't make out
their language. A building sign, looked a
little like a place I knew. I found someone
that spoke English, so I could find my way
back.
Strange and confusing.

Then I woke up about that time, I thought to
myself. I sure hope and pray that doesn't come
true. I tried to make sense of it, but I couldn't.
What a nightmare. What was that all about?
Strange and confusing.

Author's Note: It kinda gives you an uneasy, creepy feeling. Specially, when you wake up from a dream or nightmare that seems so real. Your're afraid to move, you start to look around. Then you realize it never happened.  It sure feels that way.
