By SolApathy


Something dark in my dreaming
Can’t’ escape the terror of my mind
In an instant
Crippled by fear
Something far darker than my own thoughts
Lie in my bed 
Knowing it is still here
Escaped from my nightmare-dream?
In my room
Can’t be seen
Feeling it’s breath 
Caressing my neck 
A sharpened nail 
Piercing the veil
Dream or reality 
I can’t decide
Nowhere to hide
My heartbeat echoes my fears
Pounding so furious
Praying for death
Torturing me every night
Fearing the darkness that is 
...My life

    ...Thank you so much, there are fears that people don't understand....You shouldn't try; just accept they exist and do what you can to help them survive their fears.

  • A former member wrote: I know how it is. Excellent description of night terrors, or nightmares, or both. Always good to hear abject fear spilled into a poem like this. Again, very relatable.
