Catmusings is happiest when she's creating something whether it be a short story, a poem or a play. She especially enjoys writing for children but does have a dark side lurking beneath the surface that sometimes shows itself in her adult stories. - more...

Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Dreams take you places you'd rather not go
"Journey to Nowhere" by Catmusings
When I'm sleeping, my journeys start
Whether I'm ready or not,
I drift away and I depart
A first class trip it's not,

Often I end up lost and alone
Trying to find my way home,
I have no money, no car or phone
In a Nowhereland I roam

I'm upset and I start to cry
No one even cares,
They ignore me and drive on by
With their cold, blank stares,

Finally someone stops their car
They offer me a ride,
They ask me if I'm going far
I eagerly get inside,

Before I know it, we're speeding along
The car is out of control,
I have a feeling something's wrong
Then the car starts to roll,

The car does a big flip in the dirt
The engine makes a huge roar,
I hurl through the air, but don't get hurt
Now I'm all alone once more,

I let out a stifled scream
It comes out like a peep,
Relieved that it was just a dream
I drift on back to sleep.

Writing Prompt
When I am sleeping, my journeys start.

Author Notes
I often get dreams like this where I'm lost and alone and no one wants to help or they ignore me. If something bad happens like this accident, I am jolted awake and then it's such a relief to realize it was only a dream.

Definitely not the kind of dream vacation I'd like to take!
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
