Nightmare Circus - Poem by Silentpoet Grl

looking around all seats are vacant
though the curtains start to raise
the room is dark as music plays
evil clowns grinning, pulling me,
dragging me to the center stage
laughing and mocking all around
as quickly emerging are eerie acts
strange circus creatures creeping
holding knifes they take stabs at me
deceiving mirrors come out dancing
they crack and blood starts dripping
soon bloodied shards of glass rain
over the scary scene of creatures
twirling all around me, suffocating
as the nightmare drags achingly on
a haunting presence begins lurking
shadowing me, making my skin crawl
turning around i see your hideous face,
sadistically grinning you welcome me
you're the leader of this horrible show
calling out your next terrifying move
the music continues on a painful loop
getting louder, i'm soon being chased
the room starts moving, closing in
heart pounding, i search for any exit
or to wake from this horrifying dream
with a quick flash im no longer moving
now standing in the middle of the ring
memory gone, i feel life ripped from me
feeling intense pain, blood is running
its too late, the damage has been done
collapsing, my body bruised and broken
your thundering voice loudly commanding
telling the creatures to quickly retreat,
finding their places back in the shadows
you move in and hiss a whisper in my ear
a haunting secret i now must forever keep
of the memory kept locked inside deep
then laying a kiss of hate upon my lips
looking in my eyes, you plunge a dagger
painfully deep into my chest, crying out
all life escaping, i am barely breathing
gleefully away you go with circus freaks
as the crimson stained curtains close
neck breaking, my head meets my pillow
eyes closing, so terrified i am trembling
i fear knowing this was never just a dream

    A living nightmare, it seems to me. Can you really not escape? A poem of chilling quality, and thank goodness it's broad daylight here, else I might have had nightmares... I thought the circus was for having fun? (Report) Reply
