bad dreams

by underswansea


I have a reoccurring bad dream. In the dream I am fishing at a lake. It is wonderful day. I feel the sun. I am not sure what lake it is. In the dream I catch a fish. It is big and fights hard. I’m excited. As I get it closer it tires and I realize it is not a fish but a beautiful cougar. I have hooked it in the back just through the skin, but have just about killed it bringing it in. I look at the fur that should never be wet and listen to it pant. I wish it would regain its strength and rise up and kill me. But it lies on the shore dying. In the dream I feel terrible and  end up killing it by hitting it on the head with a stone.
