Repeating Dream

When the smoke clears

I hear the screams

Look around but nothing is clear

Confusions the only thing I see

I hear familiar voices

The faces are strange to me

I don’t recognize them

Even though I feel connected to them

Now I noticed the bodies around me

Some are getting up

Some are following me

Do they want to hurt me

The voices are getting clearer

The face are too

I know these people

Or knew them

They are dead, their faces lifeless

Yet their voices strong

Do I run

What do they want

The crowd is getting larger

The faces more familiar

I knew these people

The were my neighbors, friends and family

What happened to them

I feel a tug

It’s death

She pulling me away from the dead

Dragging me towards life

Then I wake up

The same dream over and over

Why is death trying to save me
