Mind Game

heavy confused dreams
filled my night with restlessness
subconsciously awake

endlessly the mind wonders
every thought held as captive
unrelenting fear

the mind takes over
grandmaster of illusion
and I the pawn of the game

a mental torture
I mount my attack, countered
I awake, checkmate

    Love your approach to this contest and form. This is truly a remarkable write on the Mind "grandmaster of illusion", and you the "pawn of the game". Beautiful details and imagery to an magnificent poem!
