Night Terror


He who sees the true night,

Will not see the dreams light.


For when you sleep,

Your fear it will reap.


Light is banished from the orifice,

A horrible air sneaks through the crevice,

It comes with an unspeakable malice.


He who lies awake in the fortress of air,

It will come and make you feel despair.


In this night gone feral,

Be on your guard and make no error,

For it comes at you in wake of peril,

It is the night terror.

    Good write as a poem. I think that if you dwell on it in your mind, you are more likely to make the terror come about in the night. Try calming your mind at the end of the day, before you sleep.
