Entries in a Dream Dictionary

[The “official” NaPoWriMo prompt for today was “…to write entries for an imaginary dream dictionary…” using one or more of several words. I was having fun, so I used all of the words.]

Teacup:
Tempest cup, my world and worries
Spill over your brim, into my dreams
Brewing ground for nightmares

Hammer:
Thor’s hammer, you strike my fears
Nail them into my dreams
Tethering bolts for nightmares

Seagull:
High flying gull, you carry away my pain
Soar me through sleep’s ether
Gripping talons for sweet dreams

Ballet slipper:
Soft slipper, you firmly tie my longings
Bind them for my waking
Dancing shoe in night’s sonata

Shark:
Sharp-toothed shark, you pierce my failures
Chew up my efforts on razor edges
Blood-drawing carnivore of regrets

Wobbly table:
Uneven table, you hold my hopes
Balance them on too few feet
Shaking confidence in myself

Dentist:
Fearsome doctor, you excise my wisdom
Hold it up for me to mourn
Exacting physician of folly

Rowboat:
Oared boat, you challenge my love
Dare me to risk the deep
Offering room for one more
