Imagination- A Poem

Source

Imagination

I am terrified to close my eyes

To sleep at night.

To know when the full moon lights the sky

The monsters come out to stir my fright.


Wolves and vampires terrorize,

Innocent beings scream.

Goblins and witches jeopardize

It is only but a dream.


Still, my imagination constantly a threat

Creating pictures in my mind.

Tears with in my eyes, little droplets of sweat

Hauntings from the friendless kind.


Ghosts quietly whisper my name,

Demons pull at my flesh.

Trying to take claim

Of an innocent soul so fresh.


Seriel killers come searching

And I begin lurching.

Screams release themselves

Trying to save myself.


It is nothing but my imagination at work

As these creatures surround me.

With evil laughs a simple smirk

I begin to plead.


I close my eyes and count to ten

If I can picture such things like these

I can turn them into funny little men

Singing and dancing in the breeze.


I can turn the dark bare trees

Into walking branches full with green.

The bats into fuzzy bumble bees

And make all of these dark things unseen.


A smile grows upon my face

As everything changes into a fairytale.

I've turned this dark nightmare into a happy place

I'm confident I can prevail.


I open my eyes

And the sun shines bright.

Clouds fill the sky

I have won the fight.

Very nice!

I have had many a scary dream. The one that haunts me the most is snakes slithering all around me and over my body.

I especially enjoy how your clouded the dark images with fairytale images. Very cool!

Thank you, I've had nightmares similar to your snake one. Idk why it terrifies me because I'm not scared of snakes but it did.

Nice description of a nightmare, I have very vivid nightmares also. I never would have thought to turn it into somethings so positive. Nice work and very good poem.

Thank you leaderofmany. Glad you liked it. Though things may seem terrifying it's always best to try to think positive. I'll admit there are times I don't but this was one of those times I was able to.
