Siesta

 

Hey…hi…you know…

I had a dream, you can sing with me as from Tangled….listen…listen…

Yes, I had a dream this noon as I fallen asleep watching a shark movie.

A shark came with a crystal ball making me remember I’m forgetting something

Like Neville Longbottom.

Then I saw am having teacup in front of me and there’s a hammer hammering me

At my mind. What am forgetting?

A man then I saw appear out of nowhere, and stand in front of me like a projected figure

Like that happen in the Star Wars galaxy.

That time I observe the table is a wobbly table. Dancing like ghosts have arrived,

And the man in front of me–

Wait I recollect now that he’s my dentist, and I’ve had an appointment with him.

I looked around and saw a rowboat swimming away row by a seagull.

Something hit me, and I saw it was worn out a pair of a ballet slipper.

 

You may ask what all these things mean…am I still dreaming…

I think you’re a little bit of inquisitive on these elements…don’t Google…I’m going to tell

You…what they mean…

The shark was the sign of another me swimming inside somewhere…subconscious…

The teacup was the sign of my memory going liquid (read weakening) by passing days;

The hammer was the wish I have now and had them, a hammer to break away the teeth;

The wobbly table is my life now where I want nothing except this teeth to take out;

The dentist was my aching teeth who was screaming in ache or it may be the

Appointment–I don’t know or want to;

The seagull is the sign of the thoughts that are going away pushing me to poet block;

The rowboat is my blog where no one comes except few

And the ballet slipper to scare me that I shall step down so that others can get a chance.

 

So, say…what are you going to say…hello…are you there…
