Nightmares - Poem by Andrew Leone

I wake up screaming in the night
Why do they torture me so
Nightmares that come and go
And continue to grow
They induce such pain
My soul they drain
I'm going insane
From terrors unseen
No solace for my need
I cannot be free
If there is no rescue
I cannot continue
Then you shake me from the dream
Tell me not to cry, you'll stand by me
That you understand, you’ve seen a dark vision too
I don’t know want to do at night, when the shades fall upon me
And plagues my mind and makes me asphyxiate
You say you’ll love me no matter what my soul holds
The darkness that’s inside, and demons that run amok
You want me to get angry, not to hold it all inside
That you want to travel down my darkest hour
Believe me, theres a monster inside just waiting to be freed
The monster scratches and claws at my insides
It's hard to control him from coming out
You want to come along with me
Down to the place where nightmares become reality
I promise you don’t want to see what I see, feel what I feel
You’ll just ask yourself how a person could have so much hate, such pain
I forced this hate into my heart, it's my only friend,
Her lips were sewn shut,
I watched her bleed,
Its killed me within
My heart beat stumbles and my back bone crumbles
I want blood and I’ll kill him for it,
Drain me of life and he'll kneel for it
She tries get away, just get away
I keep on fighting but i can't keep going on like this
He makes me sick,
And i get so enraged of it,
He won’t let her breath,
Why can't he let me be?
