This week, I decided to write a Haiku, called “Dreams.” I used “guides” for “lead” and “rescue” for “save.”
Both words have many connotations. Depending on how you use your synonyms you can alter the meaning of your prose & poetry in many ways. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synonyms. Sometimes subtle meanings pack the most punch in your poetry. Play with the words for different reactions.

rescue me from my wild dreams,
fear controls my heart.
