Darkness awaits, feeling it near,
Shadows are close, whispering in my ear,
Shivers rising, beneath the skin,
Something is coming, I feel it within,
Echos rise, but barely make a sound,
Earth is shaking, & the heart it pounds,
Walls closing in, locking this cell,
Can hardly breathe, or break this spell.
Mind is blank, torture awaits,
Searching for answers, to pull me out this state,
Eyes are blurred, fear it crawls,
Conscious fighting through the walls.
Pulse rising, palms are wet,
Paralyzed, breaking into a sweat,
This isn’t real, my body shakes,
Fighting my way out, trying to wake
Suddenly rising, my pupils dilate,
Looking around, trying to think straight,
Pulse calms, but the images are still there,
Body still trembling, after a vicious nightmare.
