Nightmare II

Irrational fears
These questions are mysteries
Simple, frightening

Nightmares of folly
Incapacitating dreams
I cannot see through

The deep dark unknown
Making monsters from shadows
Outside the window

Tapping, tap tapping
The bogey man in hiding
Lurking with his axe

A hungry spirit
A child's feet step lightly down
On the bedroom floor

Bladder full, hurting
Froze in fear when the boards creak
He comes to eat me

Questions, in the night
Has my time come, will I die
Afraid, paralyzed

Scared and scarred by myths
Children choking on madness

Suffocation, dread
