Nightmare

It started off when my eyes close shut My mind was in sleeping mode

But my body was not

The creatures were attacking Biting, strangling, kicking

Making an unrealistic place, reality

Or what it seems to be

Running like the speed of light

I was exhausted from all the energy I had used up Running from my deepest

fears

Or what it seems to be

As morning came, creatures vanished Letting my mind awaken

And suddenly my body feeling perfectly fine

As night comes again

We will be reunited

And I will go against my fears

Or what it seems to be
