Sleep,
The most precious bless bestowed from God,
The doorway to the soul of the imagination
The cliff from which you fall and
Slip beneath the clouds of reality
A blessing for those without sin?
A priceless gift for the untainted?
The dream catcher transforms from friend to foe,
The yearning to feel his embrace again
Instead,
A shadow haunts
An unfamiliar silhoette in a cracked doorway
A demonic eye intimidates the gaurdian angels
Footsteps match the rythemic heart
Peace becomes aggression
A caress becomes a blow
Tears swallow laughter
Screams match those of the terrified angels
The carpet of reality slams you
The evil slithers away
Leaving the venomous, bloody wound

Brianne

WHOA, child I think you have some "issues" that need to be dealt with. You ever thought about counseling. *wink* Just kidding. Very good poem, but one thing is for sure, I would never let you tell any of my kids a bed time story. They wouldn't be able to sleep for weeks. That is if I had any kids.
