Night Post

It is just past 3 AM.  I have awakened from an horrific nightmare that left me trembling and shaken.  The horror….

I dreamed June was in my bath. She was lovely. I shall not go into salacious detail of just how beautiful she was.  I was glad to see her.  In fact I could not turn my eyes away.  I felt very tender towards her.  I wanted to touch her. To join her in the bath.

She asked me to fetch something and I went to find it. When I returned I found someone else was in the bath with her.  She looked at me coldly.  “Give it to me” she said in a voice that completely belied the cold look in her eyes.  I realised she was not speaking to me.

Next, she was saying “I don’t know you. Get out!”  her voice was cold again.  Now she was speaking to me.  I had something in my hand.  I held it out.

“I don’t know you” she repeated. I threw the item into the toilet.  I saw it was a book.  I was appalled as I saw it sink into the water.  I fled and awoke in my own flat. Once I realised where I was, I felt relieved to be alone.

I was desperate for a pee, but afraid to go to the bathroom, for fear of finding  a ruined book in my WC.

There is nothing more upsetting than ruining a good book.


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    “Hi, It’s a penny to a knob of goatshit (as my father used to say) that you have sleep apnoea, you need to find out how long you stop breathing for and how often you do stop breathing during the night. The June dream was a typical. symptom of apnoea, There should be a Resmed or Fisher & Paykel rep around and most of them can wire you up for a nights recording . You probably need only a referral from the local GP for that. Medicare should handle the bill. From one who cares”.

    Having a good night’s sleep is a consummation devoutly to be wished.

    But ruining a good nights sleep comes close.
