Nightmares - Poem by Poison 9901

I am the one that taunts you, come closer I implore
As you enter thru the darkness, in and endless corridor
Wondering what awaits you, behind each and every door
The sights of which you’ve never seen, my realm is yours to explore

My hands are the ones that grab you, and hold you in my clutch
When at night you suddenly wake, as you eerily feel my touch
I am the one that tortures your love, right before your eyes
Enjoying their screams of anguish, and those pathetic little cries

I’ll be the eyes that watch you, as you sense my cold dead stare
A ghastly creature of your own minds making, of me you best beware
I’ll twist your mind beyond belief; you’ll become my mental whore
I’ll grasp your heart in my icy hands, until it beats no more

I am the Keeper, the Reaper, the freak that fills your dreams
I am the horrible monster, which awakens you to your screams
I am the reason you’re running, praying that you don’t get caught
I am the faceless figure, which invades your ever thought

I am the darkest of thoughts, which live deep within your mind
In here there is no right or wrong, my rules are undefined
Oblivious to your feelings, immune to all your pain
I am the monster within, unleashed; I will drive your soul insane
