When Ghostly Dream Came True

Updated on July 30, 2017


I woke up trembling,

profusely sweating,

convulsively shivering,

my heart was pounding.

I kept my eyes closed,

trying to reminisce my dream,

and ghostly flashbacks

came speedily rushing.

My dream distressing,

was of my neighbor ‘Emma Hawking’,

a child of six years,

very jovial, entertaining.

A jolly, pretty girl

my tiny soul-friend,

the person with whom

I like time spending.

But today while dreaming,

Emma was ghostly looking.

From eyes blood streaming,

howling and crying.

I felt scared of her,

for the first time in my life,

seeing her deadly face,

I felt like running.

Emma kept her hand waving,

kept me calling ,

towards her I was moving,

though I felt like escaping.

My pulse was thready,

eyes were blurred,

as if hypnotized by her,

out of my house I was walking.

Emma's Ghostly Look

My fear started minimizing,

my friend again felt loving,

I could feel her suffering,

when her hand I was holding.

But all of a sudden,

I found myself in a ‘grave’,

the place was gloomy,

and ghostly Emma was standing.

I started screaming,

my heart rapidly beating,

Emma looked horrendous,

at me she was staring.

Emma proceeded towards me,

handed me a white rose,

‘Put it on my grave,’ she said,

while she was still crying.

Emma looked horrifying,

while she was bellowing,

it was at that time,

I woke up shouting.

I looked around my room,

there was no Emma, no grave.

So all I inferred that,

that I was just imagining.

It was 3 a.m. at night,

the clock tick-tocking,

so till the next morning,

I patiently kept waiting.

I visited Emma’s place,

as soon as sun arose,

I saw her mother crying,

on the bed, dead Emma was lying.

Emma lying dead on bed

      Spirit, god or whatever you call your higher self is communicating with you and want you to seek it so it can began to teach you its about life. You have come to the point in your life where you need to become open to spirit's instructions. We are now in the time of awakening and, I believe, spirit is saying to you "it is time to awaken to things of the spirit" so look inside yourself and find what it is has to teach you. That kind of thing happens to many people but rather than seeing spirit they just pass it along.

      Have you carried the "white rose" and put it on her grave? You should obey that and spend time alone there once you have done it and seek further directions. That may be the key to your awakening.

      Hi, DEBANGEE . . .

      " . . .in a word, wow! This is a work that I wager that you cannot begin to fathom just how deeply these phrases and foundations are in this piece."

      " . . .if this were merely metaphorical, that would be great also, but your gift of making life come through your characters is amazing. Simply amazing."

      Keep up the fine work.

      A very ghastly tale indeed! Just a note, your title is not mechanically correct. It should read "When a Ghostly Dream Came True" or "When Ghostly Dreams Come True". Thanks for sharing!
