Please stop waking me
While I try to sleep
unsuccessfully due
to horrors calling

Horror filled callings
Dread of death
and your worst fears
come to life in the night.

Eight legs that crawl
across flesh undisturbed
but only at first

Then they strike
A Piercing later
and your dead
all from on small creature
with a red bow tie on its back.

Then the screams are
heard through the house
and you wake out of breath
sweating everywhere
blankets tangled around your legs.

Breath now calm in the knowledge
that everything ok.

You walk to the back door
and there it is again
your nightmare
it lives and is truly there.

What is a Nightmare if you cant wake up from it?
