Dark black rainclouds surround my soul,
Now lifting me up into the devil side of my brain,
The sun dies out,
No light, no heat, no life,
Hands round my mouth, yet I'm still talking,
Fingers in my ears, yet I can still hear faint laughter,
Getting closer and closer...
Suddenly, screams are in my ear,
Agony flows through my veins.
Shadow lurkers tickle my spine,
When the monsters breathe in my face,
Landing on my soft, fluffy, pink floor mat,
My heart beating, I awake.
