At night I sweat
Tossing, turning
My sheets getting wet
Sleep I am spurning

Had the dream once more
Awoke with my heart thumping
Last night and the night before
The blood through my veins, pumping

Something following me
In the dark, it chases
As I look behind, I try to see
But, I see no faces

Houses fly past
As I run down the street
I hope my heart will last
No one else do I meet

It's advancing
I can smell its emanation
Behind me I keep glancing
Hoping it is my imagination

I fall, I trip, and I am caught
I can hear it bubble with glee
It has what it has sought
I cringe and wait for what's in store for me

I can feel its presence
It comes closer to me
The fear in my soul it can sense
All my muscles too tired to flee

As it gets ready to eat
I awake in my bed
I jump to my feat
Thanking God I am not dead

I act like a child, filled with foreboding
That I should have outgrown
But anytime am slumbering
I can here its moan

My life is a shambles
For in my sleep
A demon rambles
My concentration I cannot keep

I hope it will stop
Cannot keep this up much longer
Pills I try to drop
Uninterrupted sleep I do hunger

Maybe tonight I will rest
Having slept through the night
In the morning feeling my best
Not having to fight

I will just rest my eyes
Trying not to stir
Hoping not to hear my cries
As I awake due to the monster

Had the dream once more
Awoke with my heart thumping
Last night and the night before
The blood through my veins, pumping

I've had a few reoccuring dreams, but never so terrorfying as what you portray here. I like how we never get to really see what is stalking the narrator and how the nightmare effects the real world. Good job.

captures the fear I've felt in some of my similar dreams well. Wonderful!

I gotta admit, it did give me the shivers while I was reading it. Last year I awoke from a dream screaming at 3 a.m. Good memories, though, after awhile....

I noticed one thing, (directed to elvira) but your ip address is similar to mine. Are you using netzero, elvira?

(oops, it's the other ip address in my first reply above...)
