My Own Poem

by Tiffany

Some say a nightmare is a horse
That starts to gallop in a dream
And scares the sleeping one awake.

Some say a nightmare is a sea
Where storms have made waves so big
That they frighten me.

I do not know what nightmares are;
I only know they are.

But though the nightmares come at times;
They do not come
As often as the pretty horse
As often as the calmer sea
That brings all the other dreams to me.
