Once Upon a Nightmare

outside the clouds gather in front of a full-faced moon
thick and brewing
on a storm that never fully erupts.

  † † † † see it
 † † † † † † † † † hear it
and feel it start to rumble

 

green blue and gray assemble
greasing up the night before the dawn comes to rinse
cleaning out the bloodied gashes she doesn't want us to see
 

still sin and rage remain all around
the eye may have moved,
but the storm holds us all captive

it dares us to pick a side †
 † † † † pick any

but we must choose carefully

Based on a dream I've had. It's a miracle this reached the paper at all, as I forget most of them before I get a chance.
