#SalemVerse Prompt #10 – Lucid Dreams

 

As midnight comes, heart filled with fright

Deep sleep invades with force and might

darkness comes and steals thoughts white

and fills dread mouth with screams

 

And knuckles white and fists gripped tight

all is consumed and hope so sleight

a future dark a loveless plight

devoid of suns bright beams

 

 

As dawn approaches cold and bright

throws off the shackles of the night

and black relents, gives way to light

all just a dream it seems

 

Yet soul corrupted, rancid blight

all joy is stolen, no delight

to head and heart foul beasts invite

and succumbs to her dreams
