She searches for light
by Nichole Lorah

She's awaken by fear.
Dreams become all too real.

She wakes with a scream, gasping for just one normal breath of air.
Sweat dripping down her face.
All she can hear is the sound of her heart beating in her ears.

Nothing to see as she reaches behind her back for her phone. She searches for just a little light.
The fears are real and jerking at her mind. As it wonders and worries it all becomes clear, she forever has to deal with the surreal.

Escapism
by baby panda

I will not tell you of my nightmares
I will not tell you how
the monsters jumped me
at every corner
Devoured people whole
Morphed, shifted, moved
Smiling with cold eyes

smeared with blood

Nightmares Emerge
by Tammy Darby

From sleeps sweet embrace
To become realities eyes
Clouded with a dark imagination
Set forth in a torturous rhyme

Insanity my love
Premeditated thoughts undisclosed
Revealed the prophecy
Attired in woe

Something Plauges My Thoughts
by Author Reinvented

Something plagues my thoughts while sleeping,
Only whispers, nothing more
Something dangerous slowly creeping;
Has made it though my bedroom door.

Here I lay, trembling, cautious,
As the clock strikes half past 4,
Feeling further sick and nauseous,
As something corrupts the early morn.

Dear Alice
by Aurelia Lucina with Kitten and Teddy

And you dream,
and you try,
but, you're still not alive.

Then you close off again,
and you go home,
and you cry,
and you want to die.

Warning yourself against letting

Nightmares
by Julia Shaw

Nightmares are dreadful things
They creep into subconscious minds
And tear at sanity's fragile strings
Turning our thoughts to things unkind

I was a teacher of children quite small
And loved the years I spent with them
But soon after leaving teaching I recall
