Haiku challenge: Nightmare & Horror

Catching up on the Christmas prompts. This one is for Ronovan’s haiku challenge.

Dark horse in the night

gallops over broken dreams—

I dread the waking.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. It’s so cold in this house I dread getting out of bed. Because it’s cold, when the dog gets up in the night to stretch and loses his blanket he ends up barking for me to go and cover him up again, so I’m up in freezing cold a couple of times every night.
      That painting gives me the horrors!

      1. I don’t like cold either it has been very cold here the few days, even with the central heating. I get the dog thing ours loves her blanket too. Still love that photo though 😉
