She silently witnessed the enlarging ripples of cruelty, Humans performing the cremation of humanity, The pool of blood being fed by their putrid deeds, The Earthians being high on greed and lusty weeds.
While she lied on her pillow to fetch moments of solace, Snatched her peace, the tales of slumping human race, After a long battle with her thoughts, sleep did take her soul away, In the subconscious state, a nightmare was all set to swing and sway.
A thirsty witch hanging upside down from the hades, Puking streams of blood, Earth getting stained in bloody shades. Soon she got drenched in her sweat, shivering and restless, The Earth appeared like a deserted land, turning into the graves of breathless.
Humans appeared like ghosts, covered in white from head to feet, Witnessing their beloved sinking in the bog of death bit by bit, Orphan corpses lied like dead bodies of roadside strays, Humans breath blew like poisonous fumes, making the air toxic in strange ways.
She wished someone to wake her up from sleep, The nightmare had clutched her soul too tight, dug it too deep, The dream seems to have invaded the earth garbed in the cloak of reality, Voracious waves of pandemic engulfing lives, quaked the hearth of humanity.
I got the idea of this off a book I once read. In this situation a Nightmare is a guardian of dreams but may also have aggressive tendencies for them being the children of King Morpheus the ruler of sleep.
You don't know where you are. It's too dark all around you. You are alone. And suddenly it becomes too cold sending you chills down your spine. That is when you realize you are not alone. You turn around to see that dark entity coming for you from afar. You run, you fall, you crawl as fast as you can. But the entity keeps getting closer and closer and closer. And you seem to not move at all. Now you see people around you, not noticinng you struggling. Not even aware of the fact that you are being chased by that deep dark entity. You don't understand why you keep running yet not move a bit from your place. And when the dark creep almost touched you, you scream!
This could be one of your worst nightmares. This could be your current circumstances where you are stuck and everyone else is moving forward. That dark entity could be someone. Someone toxic. Someone whose presence threatens you. Or it could even be your shadow self, coming after you, trying to tell you something, wanting to make you listen to it, acknowledge it. Or like I said, it could just be one of your worst nightmares. A nightmare that wakes you up abruptly gasping for breath. But I am leaving it up to you. Interpret in your own sweet dark ways.
