Part 2 of:


"Nightly Nightmares; An Untold Story".


This is my first time ever creating a short story of sorts, in a 3 part series. I am trying something new, and feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you





… and Daily Dreams


Indeed they are cold,

so I’ve been told.

Darkness resounding,

sickness abounding.

How simply astounding,

at times they may be.


As you will see,


followed by pleas to

escape tormented cries

sounding off in your ears

from all sides,

and directions.

Unspeakable reflections,

lacking in love and

in simple affection.


Spirits live in this world,


created by mind and,

instilled by thoughts.

In here you will find

the replies to

questioned unasked.

Their answers unmasked,

You find them at last,

here in this land

formed in the past.


Fear projected through


looking glass self,

living in poverty, and

lacking in wealth.

Far from the shores,

distant and torn.

Ghostly figures are born.

It is you, they adore.

      I stopped having nightmares years ago, I guess when your younger our minds are vulnerable to attacks by demons more often. Ghosts never haunted any of my dreams, however I have been witness to an apparition and I wrote about that experience in one of my earlier hubs here.

      You have a very vivid and active mind and your imagery is fantastic, thus you are very open to receiving messages from the nether world. On to chapter 3..Rated Up..

      Dark water and mists that obscure can harbour all kinds of nastiness and as Picasso once said, if you can imagine it then it is real. The unspeakable reflections are indeed the stuff of nightmares :)

      really? :D

      I have never done anything like this. its almost like a short story, mixed with a poem

      but, even the poetry is highly unusual for me

      I am really excited about this to be honest.

      Thank you :]
