A Night of Terror (Poem)

I wake up in the middle of the night

Frightened, With the feeling of unease

I’m in total darkness waiting to see light

Because this fear is like a disease.

Going back to sleep is what I’m afraid to do

Because that is where I saw the scare;

It was running towards me but then it flew.

I couldn’t move, shocked instead and stood in it’s glare.

At that point I knew I was done

For the creature was right before me.

I stood there in shock, I couldn’t just run

And I knew this would end terribly.

But then I snapped out of it

Because this couldn’t be the end

I couldn’t just quit

And succumb to my evil “friend.”

That is the moment I awoke

But it felt so real

Why would my mind play such a cruel joke?

The mind is like it’s own world, so surreal.

I didn’t really dream this but I did have a creepy dream and woke up feeling scared. I guess you can say it was inspired by the fear I had waking up and the gargoyles my friends have told me they’ve spotted on the reservation.
