Nightmare

I run in circles
Searching for a place to hide

All of my nightmares rush at me
I search in desperation
but nothing big enough to hide the lies

I feel the air around me growing darker
As rain pours down my back

The forest around me starts to blur
I feel my legs stop in protest
Just as i ready myself to scream out in fear
My mouth snaps close

I hear the trees alive around me
I watch as they dance their sinister dance

I start to dance along
I tried to demand myself to stop
But nothing happens

I start to feel my mind give up
I'm laughing the laugh of darkness

I'm not me anymore
I have become my own nightmare
