Sleep…

A Nightmare Retold

-1-
Fear, Fright,
Darkness, Danger,
Waiting to spring,
Unknown,
Unseen, Unheard,
Sits in total silence
And patience.

-2-
With infinite deliberation,
A finger reaches out,
Grabs throat,
Scream,
Sudden Silence,
the danger Vanishes,
As suddenly as it came.

-3-
Sweat,
Breathe hard, fast
Races – heart
Shiver,
Shivers
Slowly calm down,
A glass of water
The reassuring sights
Around.
Soothe.
Return, no, slip
Slowly back into the
VOID.
The realm of terror.
Stark naked,
Torn to pieces,
Flesh, blood,
Blood, gore,
White of bones,
Stench of terror.

-4-
The Beast stalks
the One that slumbers.
