In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Nightmares.”
Negative feelings, anxieties do not haunt me during the night. They come knocking suddenly,uninvited at unexpected time and location -sometimes when I’m standing in the balcony sipping my evening cup of tea or when I’m blankly staring out of the car window.
-The thought that one day my parents will not be arround to share my happiness or patiently listen to my worries is a NIGHTMARE.
-The thought of having to depend on my son for financial support in my old age is a NIGHTMARE. ( or should I say a wake up call to save wisely for my golden years)
– The thought of having nothing to keep me occupied when my son grows up and leaves homes is a NIGHTMARE. ( hoping that ‘blogging’ my adopted child will give me company when my nest is empty. Nuturing it with lots of love, you see 🙂 )
No monsters or men with hacksaws for me but nagging thoughts that trouble me when I’m wide awake is NIGHTMARISH
