Pre-dawn paranoia

I wake with a stomachache
from something I ate in a dream
(poison, maybe) but it's only an ache
as long as I stay conscious and don't slip
back to the hag's cackle of a nightmare
that lures me with soothing
spell syllables.

Hmm...go back to a nightmare but more sleep, or be free from it but get up for work? Decisions... :)
