Nightmare Visage

NIGHTMARE VISAGE

A nightmare visage

Veiled in stripes of

Emerald and crimson

Gifts of piercing horrors

Like razor talons through flesh

Invade my sleep

Ravage my mind

For my deepest fears

Use them against me

And turn me to dust

A savage grin and clever wit

Slices me to ribbons

Place the fedora atop

That charred cranium

Complete the outfit

So devilish in your gruesomeness

My dreams

Stolen into your reality

My soul becomes your property

To fuel the fire

Of the flaming furnace

Alas, should you take

The breath from my lips

I shall never wake again
