I watched the light flash fade
I heard the sound of evil laughter
I tried to mimic someone being brave
I’m sure that I’ve run faster
I spin at every sound
In a state of fear and tension
Heart beating to the limit
Filled with apprehension
I must flip this on its head
Kick-start my inner strength
Insulate myself from the fear
Keep it all at arm’s length
It’s here
I trip
In fear
I fall
Line crossed
I park my screams
As invisible icy fingers
Rim my open mouth
And wake me from my dream


    1. That’s very true, Jae… although sometimes I write when I am half asleep and have to do it all over again. Other times, what I’ve written whilst asleep seems better somehow…! 😉
