Night Walkers

When our time is up it’s up

We have all had nightmares or terrors as many prefer to label them, when we all awaken bathed in sweat with the fears still ruining our rest, running our mind, controlling our destiny, but when is a nightmare not just a simple nightmare, when does it become something else?

Do we truly awaken from the nightmare, or only believe we do? Ask an insomniac if the nightmare is a bad dream, or just a lack of sleep…

Edgar Allan Poe summed up sleep nicely l feel with this … “Sleep, those little slices of death — how I loathe them.”

Night Walkers

Bathed ‘n sweat again l awoke,
Disturbed from my nights restlessness,
To darkness and a chilly cloak,
Lying there, searching deeply into the stress,
Which had caused me to awaken?
Unknown shadows dancing inside,
So abruptly, sleep now forsaken!
Whispers of the night outside,

Peering eyes into gloom,
Distortions of grey to black,
Seeking answers within my room,
Fading steps do walk back,
Recalling memories of a grisly tableau,
Sands falling once again,
Revealing where troubled mind did go,
Darkened shades open the brain,

Such ghastliness and distress,
Visions of such horrific despair,
Bloodied hands upon my breast!
Too much suffering for one to bare
Seduced by an all-consuming pain,
Tortured and anguished souls,
Bathed ‘n sweat l awaken again!
Yet not! Mind cast into darkest of holes!

Night walkers and mysterious hands,
Clutching painfully at my heart,
Debauchery and devilry playing with sands,
Of time, of afore and black arts,
Murdering my slumberous times,
Scornfully teasing my deadened brain,
Pushing me back into miserable slime,
Feeling now, simply so much pain,

Bathed ‘n sweat again l awoke,
Disturbed from my nights restlessness,
To Darkness and a chilly cloak,
Lying there, searching into the stress,
Unsure as to what it is and yet,
Aware of a hideous and poisonous breath,
The end is now, have no regrets!
Inhaling the message delivered by death!

Guy or Bloke, Your Choice

“There are many who don’t wish to sleep for fear of nightmares. Sadly, there are many who don’t wish to wake for the same fear.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich, Dandelions: The Disappearance of Annabelle Fancher
