Bad Dreams/Good Outcomes

She dreams that bad dreams
will cease and desist
and now she’s told to hope
these dreams persist.
It turns out these dreams
have the purpose of
helping her work out things
keeping her from love.
During the day, filters keep us going
to act appropriately and sanely
even without our knowing
or working painstakingly.
During the night, work unresolved
and unfiltered goes on
helping us with troubles to solve
eventually laughing and having fun.
We hope.
She has yet for the fun to arrive
but takes comfort in the sense
that bad dreams keep us alive,
and from committing daytime violence.
