Night Terror

Bound by invisible rope

Extremities fighting to move 

As the mouth in my minds eye 

Opens wide like a black hole 


Into a void 

My body 


Trapped inside a prism 

With Satan on my chest 

Tap tap tap 

Goes his fingers on my forehead

Black ink shrouding his face 

Tendrils of midnight smoke trailing

I scream 

And scream 

But all you hear is 


Completely mute 

I pray to wake up 

Only to find myself 

Forced down 

By the weight of the world

Slowly being sucked 

Like quick sand into the abyss 

I feel tears running down my cheeks

But my eyelids are glued 

Like a fetus

Not quite formed 

I fight for an eternity 

Until the sun comes up.
