Riddle originally from Junior Graphic : Issue 543

I am a tale in children’s minds.
I keep their secrets and share them inside.
I blur their thoughts into fantasies kept
Like a canvas of art or a submarine depth.
Though an illusion, it occurs every night;
I give them a fantasy, I give them a fright.
Neither good or bad, but always nigh’
It’s interesting to tell.

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ So what's "You only got a few seconds, to realize what just happened" supposed to mean? $\endgroup$ – Acccumulation Jan 24 '18 at 19:16
