Nightmares can leave us out of breath, puzzled,
physically disturbed and unable to go back to sleep.
Nightmares are scary because they feel so real.
You wake up and start to rationally make sense of it,
collecting evidences of why this could not be so.
You call it names as it is so ridiculous in its sequence.
Let go of the storyline and look for what's underneath it
there's a message, the true revelation of the nightmare.
The plot is inconceivable but what you feel is real.
Do welcome the emotion, embrace it,
Invite the emotion to reveal itself.
hold it close to you, as close as you can.
Your mind will reject it, want out from it.
But please, stay! Stay for a little bit.
Even nightmares have gifts for you.
