The Nightmare

The Nightmare

A Poem by Double T

It moves through the shadows

It watches during the night

But it only comes out

In the dark

Through your fear

 

The nightmare is a beast of fear

With unimaginable tricks of terror

Up its sleeve of darkness

It comes to the door of mind

Into the room where you are dreaming

To fright you in many ways possible

Causing fear and panic internally

During the night

 

You can’t see it

You can’t hear it

You can’t feel it

But you know it there

When it is there

It’s fun begins

And your pain is its pleasure

 

The nightmare is only awaken

By the fear that triggers

Through the horrors of flat screen TVs

To the fears in our every lives

 

It can come out of nowhere

From the darkest parts of your closet

To the vowels under your bed

It can grab you

It can shake you

It’s capable of those things in dreams

To mess you up in the real world

I get that this is talking about demons. Yes, demons do carry fear and bring you nightmares.

"By the fear that triggers Through the horrors of flat screen TVs"

Yep, I'd say that's about right. Horror movies ar triggers to allowing demons into houses and they come in and bring nightmares.
