Nightmare

I lay in my bed
And rest my eyes to sleep
Chills overhead
The voices begin to weep

Weeping in the faint sound of a siren
Ringing like bells on a cocktail ring
Lingering above;unknown to be seen
The witch riding backs of Frightened Fiends.

Wake as you try, but she holds on tight
Speak as you like, but she's done such fright
Scream as you would, only a whisper to the night
The witch is there, but out of line sight

Cry, wish you could, but the tears never roll
Rise, as you attempt, but prison is your hold
Struggle for time;She had her turn
Release is now, when your ears burn

Rupture is your body, as the ride is over
Silent is the air, but you tend to speak.
Rise is your body; the hands are gone
Cry are your eyes,as sobs turns to moans

This was really good. Very creative. On some parts it made me stop and think about what you were illustrating because I was truly interested. I believe that is what made it stand out to me. keep it up :)

I am deeply jealous of your skills as a poet. Please keep wring, and maybe read and comment on my work, so i can be a fantastic poet too.

It's...nostaligic in a really sick and horrific kind of way.
It makes me think of all those nightmares i had when i was little.
I love it :)

oh my gosh. this was so powerful. and kinda haunting. the rhyme scheme was different, but that added to the poem a lot.

Great job! Im usually not a fan of poetry that rhymes at all, but i really like this. my only suggestion: try to keep rhyming consistent throughout the poem. thanks for your comments on my work!
