I Dreamed the Unspeakable

I dreamed the unspeakable

Nearly to the realm of unimaginable

But not quite

Rewind to last night

Moments before I awoke

To the beep of my 6:30 alarm

And the vivid imaginings I held

In dream they were a fact 

In waking a relief

Had I beheld a prophesy 

These words would spell g-r-i-e-f

What horrors I beheld

My mind would not tell

So long as I have restraint to withhold it 

I'll hold it well.
