Nightmare

As I close my eyes

I enter into the void

slipping into the 

inky black of sleep.

Drifting on dark clouds

into the hidden world

so carefully clad 

in bright array

now shedding its 

disguise, revealing truth

the fear of living

the bitter anxiety 

of love denied.

The dark sweeps in

enveloping completely

falling ever deeper

into the shadows

that come alive

bony fingers reaching

grasping at the very heart.

The phantasm being

deceptively benign

calling me further 

into the deepest reaches.

Awaking into dream

or delving into nightmare

I reach out to escape

knowing I will return.
