Poetry Pleases: Nightmare

Mary Clemons writes of a blood-chilling nightmare in which goblin, witch and devils come dancing into her room.

Goblin, witch, devils, shadows of night
Dance in tree branches by passing car light
Dance ‘neath the pines out of sight

To my window and in

Black clouds dancing across the sky
Figures on walls darting by
Pitch fork partners crawling on high

Running within my room

Night shadowed figures alive in flight
Dance in my room with no car light
Pull sheets and pillows into the night

Creating my vacant bed

M. S. Clemons 2005
