Nightmare

20130428-140258.jpg

IT IS ALL TOO MUCH

THE THOUGHTS
(I hear the thunder)

THE APPREHENSION
(I smell the despair)

THE ANGER
(I feel the earth shake)

THE FEAR
(I see the turbulent clouds)

THE RUNNING
(I taste the foreboding)

THE NIGHTMARES
(The lightning illuminates all my fears)

Standing on a precipice
Indecision
One step
Forward
Or back

The raging storm
Thunder and lightning
Intensifying
Over my head
A crescendo of fury

A heart stopping moment
Breathless
Still

Down comes the rain

A deluge of emotions

Stinging needles

On my skin

Soaking me

Drenching

Washing away

The taste of dread

The smell of terror

Drowning the demons

I struggle to

Keep at bay

Down comes the rain

Cleansing

Purging

Absolving

Restoring

Until

The next

Nightmare
