denial

As I laid peacefully
In a sound state of bliss
A dream occurred
And in it held this:

I had no feet
And could not walk
I had no lips
And could not talk
I had no ears
And could not hear
Nor eyes to see
What I hold dear
My arteries, veins
And once strong spine
Had their fluids replaced
With turpentine
The excruciating pain
I could not overcome
My inner self
Had become brutally numb

And though I endured this dream
For just a short while
This dream
I fear
Was called denial
