This is for @_shimmermist_'s contest! This is a dream I had around a year ago, and it's been in my mind ever since

A Prophetic Dream

She held my hand with a vice grip

She held my hand with a vice grip Fingers interlaced with mine

As we walked through the ivy-covered gates of the garden

We were both seeking something

Stone walls stood firm and tall against the sky

Surrounding the stunning grove of trees before me

Trapping the sweet scent of flowers within

It seemed like every surface

From the rose petals

From the rose petals to the rocks in the stream

Glowed golden beneath the light of the sun directly overhead

The warmth wrapped around me like my favorite wool coat

I looked at the trees with emerald leaves

And marveled at the fruit that they bore

And marveled at the fruit that they bore Each one was a different color

And marveled at the fruit that they bore Each one was a different color Countless hues and shades

And marveled at the fruit that they bore Each one was a different color Countless hues and shades Some of which my eyes had never seen

Each with unique markings

I couldn't help but smile to match the beaming face

Of the beautiful woman in sheer robes that approached us

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden These trees are gifts from God to his children

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden These trees are gifts from God to his children Go, search the trees together

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden These trees are gifts from God to his children Go, search the trees together For if you find two fruits that are exactly the same

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden These trees are gifts from God to his children Go, search the trees together For if you find two fruits that are exactly the same You two are meant to change each other's lives forever

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden These trees are gifts from God to his children Go, search the trees together For if you find two fruits that are exactly the same You two are meant to change each other's lives forever Share your fruits, eat them together

"Welcome," she said, "to our garden These trees are gifts from God to his children Go, search the trees together For if you find two fruits that are exactly the same You two are meant to change each other's lives forever Share your fruits, eat them together So you can spend your lives in tandem."

So my companion and I got to searching

We walked along the soft grass with bare feet

Hand in hand

Longing for a match

Longing for a match I knew she was meant to change my life

Longing for a match I knew she was meant to change my life She had already saved me once

Hours flew by us

The sun never leaving her post

As we went through the whole garden

As we went through the whole garden With a fine-toothed comb

Finally, finally

Finally, finally We found our twins

We each held one in our hands

We each held one in our hands Turning them over

Double and triple-checking the cream-colored freckles

Double and triple-checking the cream-colored freckles That stood stark against their deep azure surfaces

They were perfectly identical

I pressed the velvety skin to my nose

And breathed in its sweet candy scent

And breathed in its sweet candy scent The aroma made my head swim

This was it

I eagerly bit into it

I eagerly bit into it Letting its juice fill my mouth and coat my tongue

It was sweet

It was sweet Too sweet.

Then horribly, repulsively bitter

Then horribly, repulsively bitter My body heaved and I spit it out onto the grass

Then horribly, repulsively bitter My body heaved and I spit it out onto the grass Nose crumpled and gagging

Then horribly, repulsively bitter My body heaved and I spit it out onto the grass Nose crumpled and gagging Disgusted

The inside

The inside Was black and sickly brown

D r i p p i n g like a sick child's nose

The fruit was rotting at its core

I still cannot get that taste off my tongue
