I only sleep to see
red eyes staring back at me

I go to bed, and there they are
shadows getting close to me

Monsters tear
and rip me apart
I run away
their claws
grab, cut and choke
their satisfied, and leave

I wake up,
it's only a dream.
I wake up,
I have scars
Why do I bleed?
Was it a dream?
Would you believe me if I told you that a shadow follows me. A shadow bigger, darker, and heavier follows me. I can see them in the dark moving besides me. They are trying to get a hold of me, choking me, holding my mouth shut so that I can't scream. I wake up with scars on my wrists, and pain on my chest. Their not shadows are they? 9/2014
