Nightmare in Daylight

Post No. 844

Nightmare in Daylight

.

Yesterday began like any other day

The sky suffused with pink from top to toe

No portent of what was to come

Of what I would have to bear alone…

Grossly betrayed by my being —

Nothing new but surely in the past

Pass-ed and all but forgotten

Vapourised and/or evaporated

Memories flooded my brain

My nightmare had returned – again

The Prison of Her Mind

 

The Prison of Her Mind

 ~~~

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

[And what is your name again?]

-a-b-c-d-e-f-g-

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

-a-b-c-d-e-f-g-

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

Ken jy vir Japie, André of Theunis?

[Do you know Japie, André or Theunis?]

En wat is jou naam nou weer?

~~~

Arms flailing to keep her balance

Leaning, falling in slow motion

Head spinning, in rotation

Of never-ending circles in her mind

Will the nightmare never end

Is there any way to mend

Electric signals disconnected

Endless thoughts have separated

Flitting, floating through the air

Powerless to bind

To other atoms in her mind

~~~

Scary, Scary Night

scary Pictures, Images and Photos

Scary, Scary Night

As the last rays of the sun
Drop below the horizon,
As the dusk turns to dark
Colour fades to different shades
Of black and greys.
Eyes strain to make out alien shapes.
As I brush against the drapes
A heavy fluttering fills the air;
What it is I do not care.
Bats, vampires, bloody ghouls –
And killing tools –
My mind runs riot,
Filling me with a deep disquiet.
Evil men and dastardly deeds –
Rapists with unholy needs –
This is the world of the night,
Where all the innocent take flight.

Aftermath

Aftermath

Nightmare in the morning,
Children’s voices crying,
Adult voices calling…
,

Thick dusty fog,
Glimpses swept away
By the waves of smog…
,

The earth has shaken,
Nothing is the same,
Buildings have fallen…
,

Footsteps running
This way and that,
Terror and scurrying…
,

Angels of mercy
Arrive at the scene;
Rescue work begins…

Nightmare

Nightmare

The moon was covered by a cloud,
Darkness deepened all around.
I ran and ran as fast as I could
Across the grass and into the wood.

The ground became as soft as mud,
My feet were sucked down very hard,
My legs were weary beyond belief
Yet still I persisted, to find relief.

Branches were like gooey rope
Sticking fast to all they touched.
A hairy arm reached out to me –
I screamed out as it brushed my cheek.

Shedding my clothes to escape being caught,
Sensing danger at every turn,
I opened my eyes to confront my foe
And the light switched on above my head.
