The Nightmare

Broken glass, jagged pane;

Blood stained,

Cold pain--

Beaming, white light;

Sunbeams escape,

Piercing fire rays;

Projecting quick,

Smooth sky, fiery sun fantasy;

Sailing Clouds, moon, sun,

Midsummer rebel--

Night visitors revel;

Faeries, elves, banshee,

Moonlight, oceans, Selkie—

Mermaids outside water;

Floating streams, sinking lakes, ponds, rivers,

Strong boats,

Onward babbling brook;

Spring meadow—

Flowers unfold deer, fast hare, horses, unicorn;

Griffin, dragons, stone gargoyles,

Wolves' strength, butterfly wings; Creeping salamanders,

Midnight Neverland—

Bright window--

Peering inside mirror;

Shadows' reflection, divine nightmares,

Daydreams disappear;

Merry goblins dancing,

Darkness covers throughout;

Bleeding stars, hidden faces,

Tortured souls, trapped door-ways;

Vanishing stranger, looking,

Birds fly onward;

Mettle—Me,

Hard metal—sharp, steel shards;

Defy gravity,

Phantom music, masks, swirling mist;

I see myself within,

Drowning forever,

Immortal Divinity…
