Terror in the Night



As I lie beneath my sheets

I feel a terror come over me

The sky of my heart darkens

As it begins to race

I dare not open my eyes

For if I see what might be there

It will become reality

And that I simply cannot bear

Yet what choice is this

To hide and not see

What might not even be

 Part of reality

Dare I

Should I

Do I

Slowly with a quickened heart

My eyes shall open

To see, what must be seen

I have seen what must be seen: this is world class writing and so terrifying and creepy I am having a hard time going to bed and sleeping!
