Awake

"What do you call nightmares during the day?"

Twisting, turning
Mumbling, moaning
In the quiet of the night,
The nightmare begins anew…

I
Fall.

Falling
Into blinding darkness
Into hopeless illusion
Into empty reality
Falling
Into
X

I shout out in frustration
I cry out in pain
And with a
Strangled
Scream,
I awake

And find myself
In the world of Dreams.
