The Nightmare

You said
Let me be your nightmare
Let me seep
Within the subtle skin
Of sinless sleep
Let me draw
Your darker desperation
From dreamless depths

You said
I will be your shadow
Let me flicker
Faithless friend that follows
Frightened footsteps
Let me remain
Resolute and remorseless
Relentlessly roughshod

You said
Let me be your terror
Let me frighten
Fearful little fools
Following lost phantoms
Let me savour
Stalking secrets and signals
Of your singular soul

You said
Let me be your nightmare
Sinking into severed sleep
Subliminal soul
Seduced to the deep

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    That last verse would be a right bugger for somebody who couldn’t pronounce their ‘esses’ properly.
