Scratching at my Soul

It had to be a dream But so, so real It did seem And it did feel Like everything in sight Had it's own appeal Oh how bright Was the black Of the night Then the attack From all around Front and back Unbelievable was the sound Of pain's own cry Even through the ground Fight or fly No! run and hide Stay and die Not hard to decide It seems to be everywhere Escape I tried It didn't care I could feel the cold, dead touch Through my soul it did tear The pain was much More than anything Unbearable or such Fearing what it will bring Resist, fight and pray To the one and only King I am not prey Never have been And not that day

You have described my worst nightmares in the form of a poem. Luckily, I do not have them any more. Knock on wood.
