Should I bring a résumé of my dreams to the publishing company on West 38th?
An abstraction of when my teeth crumble like pastels, or summaries of my vocal cords seeking air through a taut fabric. I’ve achieved piercing silence in a room of white noise.
I have an impressive inventory of witnessing infidelity. once, we were both in between romantic partners. I was awakened by the taste of copper from biting the inside of my cheek. It looked worthy of an aged Merlot.
My most admirable skill is prediction. I can sense a mass shooting or the expiring heart of a loved one. but I usually float like an island over the scene because my biggest weakness is lacking density.
Adrenaline pumping into my heart False hallucinations in the dark Dread and haunt fills the air What is that over there? Half asleep, I can't stay awake My eyes should've for my sake My dreams take me by the hand And throw me into a horrific land The fear built on possibilities And instilled in realities Sleep paralysis joins in too I'd rather be sleep deprived completely, wouldn't you?
The night terrors have returned to haunt me Not able to sleep alone in my own bed The monsters in my dreams look like you The look of being used and hurt by you When I am asleep with my eyes still open Scared that they might come alive And eat my sleeping body
All your friends are demons, I think I know The past won’t let you settle as you grow You don’t feel you can make life-changing moves Half your life to fighting terrors you lose There’s little you can do to take control Put your smile hidden in a pigeonhole Your emotions decline into freefall Let’s give your heart and soul an overhaul I can give you all the tools you will need The hunger that dwells inside I will feed
I can give you love and trust hereafter I can turn the pain and tears to laughter I’ll help reach in to find the real you Harmonizing with congenial you We will fight, we’ll curse, we’ll scream, we will cry In this war it’s only the past will die Now and then, when they rear their **** head I’ll be there to put those demons to bed When you say maybe I don’t understand I will simply be there to hold your hand
Panic Mind scattering panic The confusion The fear Throat clenching fear The glazed eyes The tears The drenched sheets The constant shivers The dark The shadows come to life The hand clenching your chest The heart trying to escape its cage The clawing at invisible bindings The suffocating The weight on your chest The gasping for air The amnesia What has you so scared
This is just my experience with night terrors. I never remember the actual dream but my body seems to.
Evil strung across her face, flaring Yellow eyes glaring with Hunger in her sparkling smile Fangs protruding waiting Ever so patiently...
Im in terror. She promises the end of me As I turn to flee, helplessly Weightless as gravity fails I flail fighting the sky, but To no avail...
I am alone now. Left in the scaffolding Its baffling, what was she?! I can still hear her laughing?! Why not just **** me? Was I not prey? More of just a play thing? Maybe...but still Way up here, alone... Im as good as dead.
