Image for the poem Led-awake-mare


Loathsome eyes of a night hag are staring in the paralysis of my sleep
Evoking my bespoke nightmares, in disguise it'll idle awhile then creep
Disturbing and coercing demons in its stealthy sleight of haunting veils
As it leaves me fearing the cold unseen touch, of its fingers razor nails
With a blink of its raven eyes, it's there, darkness descends and worse
As I know its siren's silent screaming, is more than any demon's curse
Keeper of horror, stay in my paramnesia, trapped until night is morrow
End this phasm, still in my mind, for where I am, you must not follow...
My frightened eyes are wide, as a shadow slips through the open door
And now in pre-dawn's half light I await the daybreak, or a paring claw
Roused from my delusions, its presence has come at my sanity's cost
Emerging from my led-awake-mare, the oneirophobia's finally crossed
