You Know the Feeling
I awake, alone in my bed,
Trying to shake that nightmare from my head.
That last dream felt much too real,
Creepy, its presence I can still feel.
In solitude, I am, but something is here,
I know this because of my ever-growing fear.
I hold my covers up, acting as my shield,
Yet, vulnerable I feel like prey in an open field.
Will it attack me?
Will I go crazy?
It is evil and mean,
Escaped from my dream
It bites at my mind and tears at my nerves,
Blind my mind imagines a horror with sinister curves.
It approaches! smelling my tears,
A beast feasting on my fears,
Growing strong as I grow weak;
The breaking point has come-I release my shriek.
I scare myself into another sleep,
As another nightmare steadily begins to seep,
Into my head
Alone in my bed.
