Sunday Muse - Neighbor Dreaming


   The girl next ... 

The girl next door 

Always in my dreams 

Face to behold 

Beauty beyond means 

Beauty's skin deep 

I've always been told 

But in this dream 

Ugliness unfolds 

Body's the same 

Pretty face as well 

There's something wrong 

Makeup's cast a spell 

Black and pale white 

Colors of her choice 

I pinch myself 

Her picks I've no voice 

Awake I know 

Female at play 

Grisly gruesome 

Halloween's today

Dreaming a costume? Dreaming a fear? Dreaming a hint?

Hopefully just a dream? ...

I'm in London right now, and there was this really, really Goth girl who walked by me on the street. I was super sure at first it was a Halloween costume. But, um, no. Your poem made me think of that!

What a chilling nightmare to have about a neighbor. Maybe once Halloween passes so too will the dreams. :::fingers crossed:::
