Nightmare in the Den (Wake Me up When It’s All Over)


CrisSp is your Emergency Specialist at 37 thousand feet. A writer without a niche. Wonderwoman consumed by wanderlust!



Between the hour of six and seven in the evening

The dozing young woman fell into the hellhole

Nasty chain of events happening in the den

My heart freezes but who’s in trouble?

Maybe I should call to interrupt the climax

Too late, the situation is too deep

For the next chain of events

The guilty parties are into their signature dish.

The portrait on the wall fell onto the floor

And now the older woman’s face had her nose

Pointing to the ceiling and the aura of kindness

Now, replaced with the inexplicable uneasiness.

The portrait screams for dander and revenge

What have you done you fool, in between the holy hour

When the virtuous call praying?

Did you feel the heat while you’re in heaven?

Was the pleasure genuine without a tremor of doubt?

Or was it simply a reflex from the hour of excitement?

Tempting to hide the shame, a hot feeling rippled her soul

The artist’ mouth is dry, eyes wet and fingers shaking.

She tried to step into another world of dry grass

Wanting to escape but it was too late, she’s down into the hellhole.

Swiftly, the waves of tears and fear sets in

But to her wandering mind, there’s something nice.

Just like the blue bike from her friend at school.

What’s her name again? Emma, is it?

Who cares now? The play is over.

She’s now stiff but who will pay?

The portrait of a woman is now clout, chest punched!

So, what is she planning next?

It’s over! Welcome, welcome to my funeral.

It's next Friday between the hour of six and seven in the evening.

Eric: I thought you'd give me some sermons after reading this. *smile* I get your point, much to my chagrin. :) and we cannot under estimate human instinct specially of women's. Bet, your wife will conform. Love from the sky~

CrisSp (author) from Sky Is The Limit Adventure on April 27, 2018:

John, no need to be sorry. We can't be all that wizard. :) But, as always, thank you for coming in here. Blue skies today from my part of the world. Smile!

manatita44 : Aha! Coded maybe? I like your thinking. :) But we need to decipher the nightmare.

Hari Prasad S : Thank you for your input. Much appreciated.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 26, 2018:

Sure I can interpret this but it is too embarrassing to share. This just left me lost and adrift. That says to me that it was excellently done.

My son and I just spent some time with the notions of Rhyme and Rhythm we like them both and you delivered here.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on April 25, 2018:

Hauntingly deep poetry here, Cris. Sorry, I am unable to even attempt to interpret that dream, but loved the poem.

manatita44 from london on April 25, 2018:

Mystic or intrigue? Written very well. Coded perhaps? The style is awesome!

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on April 25, 2018:

Excellent poetry. Crisp.

Folks never get it right,

It isn't all right. to alight,


Drugs hug real tight.

Randi Benlulu from Mesa, AZ on April 25, 2018:

Totally agree with Frank! Amazing and powerful! Thank you for sharing!

I don't have an interpretation but I have an additional song that came to mind as I read this Bring me to life by Evanescance
