Please tell me it’s a dream (a poem)

Random stuff plus a snippet of dream…

Pour the grains back in my head
let me go back to sleep
These dreams haven’t quite sorted themselves out yet
I need to go deeper

I feel my breath catching
my body gives a slight twitch
I keep having this dream in which I can’t breathe
Please tell me it’s a dream…

There is blood on my face
but the bleeding won’t stop
It feels as though everyone is watching
but it won’t stop

Pour the grains back in my head
just let me go to sleep
I know there’s a better dream just around the corner
Please tell me it’s a dream (for real)
