They come from blackness that blinds the sight

10 feet in height, ruby green eyes, and wings that embrace

High above the foot hills and frozen mountains they race

They come in my dreams

The devilish fiends


They come for me at night

laughing and jesting in their alien tongue

flying, clawing, snarling

At night they reign like Kings

But dawn breaks

They are not a lasting thing


I awake,

Tired from enduring my nightly travels with these creatures, I'll reap

It's effects in the morning but it is not a lasting thing

I reach my hand to my face

I cannot find my mouth, nose. or eyes

I have no mouth for screams and cries

No eyes to sob

No nose to smell

Somewhere in blackness that blinds the sight

10 feet in height, ruby green eyes, and wings that embrace

Flies a monster who has stolen my face!

Oh My Twinkies (though I've never eaten one). Teriffic! (Sry, my spelling is awefull ;-) But seriously, great poem. I loved how there was no rhyme scheme but some words did rhyme and somehow it made it flow and the topic was awesome and the ruby green eyes turned me around and I was like WHOA.
