Waking Nightmare

Daily Prompt- Nightmare

I dance restlessly in the dark an unbearable waltz

Of tossing and turning

Rolling and folding into my pillow

Again, lulled into the arms of deep sleep

Into a world of unimaginable horror

Faceless abominations seem much too real

Bombs blare and boom

Pained voices

Bone-chilling screams

Echo off cracking, splintering walls

Floors vanish

Collapsing in the dark

Landing twisted, misshapen

Metallic warmth surrounds me

A ghastly horror is upon me

Evil engulfs this space

Death’s scythe tugs at my faint heart

Paralyzed, locked in Grim’s limbs

I cannot move or see  

But I feel its eyes upon me

I dare not see what’s come for me

I do not want to know

A disembodied voice speaks to me

Open your eyes

See what I bring

I cannot

I will not see

And will myself from sleep

Into another unimaginable horror

Death stares back at me

  1. I often visit your site and have noticed that you don’t update it
    often. More frequent updates will give your site higher
    authority & rank in google. I know that writing posts takes a lot
    of time, but you can always help yourself with miftolo’s tools which will shorten the time of creating
    an article to a few seconds.

    1. Jeramy, thank you for the advice. Like most, finding the time between writing novels, working a full time job, and life, it’s a little daunting. With so much on my plate, I’ve decided one or two reviews a month is all I have time for. But I will check out miftolo’s tools. Again thank you!
