Is a Nightmare a Curse?

Is a nightmare a curse?

Or a blessing in disguise?

Is a pleasant dream a gift?

Or a path that's unwise?

When you wake up from terror,

you're glad it was a dream.

But when you wake from a fantasy,

a hole is carved from your heart–

It drives you to scream.

Be thankful for all you have.

Do not try to dream.

For when you’re caught wishing,

it may tear you at the seam.
