Slowly you turned…

You move with devastating slowness. How can you not hear it? Instead of stepping off the tracks, you turn to look at me, and I’m screaming and screaming, “There’s a train coming!!”

And I wake up in a cold sweat, my legs cramped and my lungs devoid of air. As the seconds turn to minutes I relax. It’s got to be the taco I ate for dinner. There’s always a trigger*.

*Author’s note: “Slowly I turned…” is a reference to a series of old comedy sketches. Worth the Google search if you’re not familiar with them.

    • I wanted to put the rest of the lines in, but they didn’t make sense. 😛 I did manage to get the word “trigger” in though. 🙂
      Not sure which foods affect my dreams either. Might be worth paying attention to, eh? 🙂
