I wake up and everything is silent.
Did I have any quiet dreams?
Was everything violent?
Through my bathroom door I see light's beams.
My bed creaks when I move my weight,
white sheets fall to the floor,
when I go through the bathroom's door,
my mind runs a furious debate.
Should I stay or should I go,
when my eyes catch a soft glow.
I approach my full length mirror,
and my reflection should become clearer.
At first nothing occurred,
it's as if my vision suddenly blurred.
with bated breath I waited.
I put my hand on the smooth black matted wood,
when my reflection blinked,
I know I wasn't responsible for that
perhaps blurriness and spooky reflection were linked?
There's a soft glow around my reflection
that surrounds me like a crown,
and with a warm affection
I notice that it's deep brown.
'You value hearth and home the most,'
My doppelgänger speaks,
'But even with outdoors you're very close.'
At this observation red colors my cheeks.
'You are reliable and endure more than the rest,
with simplicity and green thumb you're truly blessed.
People should come to you if they seek comfort and stability,
you won't turn them away due to your dependability.'
'You are meant for great things, never forget,
but beware of a great threat-'
'What?' I yell, 'Continue!', I plea,
but where once was deep brown, now there's nothing to see.
What happened I wonder,
was it only a dream?
There's a strike of the thunder,
and a sweet bed waiting for me.
