Breathless awakenings

I fall asleep after a while.
Then the normal routine happens....
My everyday nightmare returns...

When I awaken I don't remember exactly what I dreamt of,
but I remember demons, lurking in the shadows,
Werewolves and other monsters attacking me when I stand defenseless,
Vampires feeding off my blood,
And falling in black abliss.

I awake within the nightmare itself,
I awake breathless and sweaty,
I look around and I see only hell,
Fire all around, burning the doomed souls,
And then I change,
I become one of the monsters which I have feared so passionately.
I attack and feed off other defenseless people,
And watch them awaken as monsters, too.

I awaken in my bed, breathless,
And I inhale deeply,
I remember the Other breathless awakening,
And shiver.....

    This is full of scary images and nightmarish descriptions, but it's well written and carries itself well, good job Anne, keep it up. (Report) Reply
