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.
