My nightmare is too sinister
I really shouldn’t share
Do you see my hands trembling?
death is hanging in the air
I won’t’ survive the night
if this story makes the page
I hope you realize my peril
if the monster escapes its cage
Do you hear the chains breaking?
the metal bars have been breached
I know it’s too late to flee
the safest place is out of reach
I must stand and face the monster
use the weapons I’ve designed
warrior and monster are at the ready
this is a battle for my mind
