SUBTLE NIGHTMARES

I’ve been dealing with an especially long bout of nightmares. They don’t bother me really other than I wake up more often and that bothers me eventually. Some are relentless and some just… sneak in and subtly warp things. Like an especially large or evil smile on the face of a loved one. Or my house has an extra door and someone is slowly opening it.

I hope your dreams are better.

The first odd thing

Coming up for air

Slinks around corners

Stealing and draining

Picking at scabs

Like phantoms

Like Santa

Like itchy fingers

Hiding and waiting

Inside smoky dreams

To pull you under

Before you can scream
