An Overcome.

How I overcame the nightmare?

Heard a sound feeble

down the garden in low decibel

went past  the flower bed 

 nothing could be heard

 walked towards the gate 

  heard a little purr out of date

 turned to catch a look

 it hurried  like a crook

went my way all along 

heard  a whimper like song 

 stopped  did not turne back

from behind the track

 felt  a  slight move 

came it slow in a prove

 stood stoic  like a rock 

 it did knock 

 did not budge 

I took a pledge 

not to get through

knew it was behind me all true 

it leaped in front

made  a soft grunt

Yes, it was a  hallucination

 the mind  at work  in designation

Startled yet resolute ahead I go 

I did overcome the nightmare in slow

a  grotesque satisfaction in a smooth flow.
