When I close my eyes to sleep,
I pray to dream happy thoughts.
Every night reads alike for me,
endless battles I have fought.

Disturbing as one could imagine.
Partial derangement is all I share.
If I allocate more than a glimpse, 
it would now be your nightmares

Dreaming of death and torment;
evil tortuous rituals to say a few. 
I feel painful stings of every gash,
closing my eyes to what they do.

Hideously they show their faces,
in plain view, not out of sight.
Tempting my powers of elation;
mentally slaying me every night.

Some dwell within the shadows;
more deadlier than the evident. 
Wickedly laughing towards me;
reeking of sinful, raunchy scents.

When I close my eyes to sleep,
I pray a spirit of peace over me.
Fighting to win a battle of flesh,
and one day be nightmare free.
