A Dream So Real.

Updated on September 27, 2012

I was awake most of last night with a bad stomach ;the rain was pouring down and the wind was whistling like a mad man's calling!!!!

This is what led to today's hub; it is totally different to my usual style but I hope you enjoy.

A couple of hints though..........................

"Don't read on your own!!!!!"

"Don't read in the dark!!!!!"

Source

Clawing

frantically

screaming

hysterically

drowning

in a darkness

so heavy

so bleak.

Always in inappropriate

measures;

a slight gleam

so slim

so fragile

so dim

that

sparkle

from a saviour's light

almost

into the

far far away future!

Almost a pin pricks measure

minute

but

nevertheless

THERE!!!!


Source

Obstacles slithering

from adverse directions

like sleek slithers of

lethal daggers

darting

in front

behind

above and

below.

Nearer and nearer

so so near

on the verge of stabbing

that vital

dark

miserable

but ferocious

proud spirit

refusing

to relent

to give in!!

Dodging each menacing

spine chilling

stab-like

gnarled

fingers

of

ice cold

dark

and bleak

DEATH!!!!

Aaaarrghh!!!!!



Source

That piercing

howling

hysterical scream!!!

In almost hysterical screams

touched by that bloodcurdling tones

as i hurtle

into an echoing

bleak

dark

impenetrable

walls of dark canvas.

To describe

as hurtling downwards

into a long black

cold tube

falling

falling

falling!!!!

Churning stomach

revolves as I let out an all consuming

but oh so silent

SCREAM!!!!!!

Source

Downwards

down

down

down

down

into the stagnant stench

of evil doings!!

A moment of stillness

reveals

a neon sign

'THE OLD WISHING WELL,

LONSDOWN ROAD!!!!'

Again resuming that fear filled drop

further

and

further

the smell of fear

so all consuming!!!!

As I hurtle at speeds so unreal

A piercing shrill

beeping

invades the bleak nothingness

and I fumble from my so comfy bed

hastily

to switch off

that usually

so

annoying alarm clock ,

but today a godsend which invades

the dream;

the nightmare!!!!!!

BBBRRRRING!!!!!!

Source

Shrugging off the final

fear conjured by that nightmare

I step into the shower before

setting off to work

another day at the office!!!

'Fuchsias' my fluffy white

Burmese cat

purring so loudly

as she wraps herself

around my legs.

As I pour myself that very first cuppa of the day

I hear

the daily paper

coming through

the letter box.

I open the first page and

GOODNESS ME!!!

I gasp as I read the headlines.

'Wealthy 'Dame Edith Wensley' goes missing!!!'

'Shoulder bag found at the entrance to Lonsdown Road!!!'

In almost robotic movement I reach for the phone and dial '999.'

"Emergency Services ,how can I help you???"

In a shaky voice I reply;"I think I may be able to assist you with the disappearance of 'Dame Edith Wensley!' "

      Wow, so bone chilling frightening and you did a great job conjuring up fearful and scary emotions here and just in time for the Halloween season. A bit different than usual, but I do like it probably because I love Halloween. Have voted, shared and tweeted too!!

      Scary indeed, the kind of nightmare you want to wake up from in a hurry, jump out of bed and into a cold shower. I've had a few of my own and I always feel better once I've left the nightmare behind in my chamber. Well done my friend, I felt the hairs lifting on my neck.

      Eddy, Scary, spooky! And "The scariest music ever heard" was perfectly scary as well! You set the atmosphere and never let up! I'm not a fan of being scared.

      Reading this gives us a glimpse into what a real psychic's life must be like. It must be a great burden to bare especially when it involves people dying from ill intent of others. Quite the nightmare! Interesting hub for sure.
