Familiar Nightmare

Danger
I run
I hide
He is there, watching over me..
Where am i?

I turn around
I punch but the impact is suddenly weakened
Cannot fight back
My feet want to run again..
Looking down, they are stuck to the ground..
Blood and dirt
streaking my toes

Looking around, dark colours mixed with red.
Danger,
Lord, hear my cry
I am alone, yet accompanied,
He is here,

Bad spirit, disappear
Suffocated with goosebumps,
Is this a dream?
Familiarity- I have been in this black hole before.
Have I?
My ears are stabbed with the sound of horrified screaming,
My voice?

I can feel him now,
So near
His moist breath stains the back of my neck
My eyes are fogged with fear
A rabbit and a wolf
A deer and a lion
Where is my predator?

I am trapped,
Marble, white plastic
A metal lock stands before me
Its power so great at this moment
A force holds me back from this lock,
I will never get out of this enclosed..cubicle!
Why am i here again?

Hyperventilation,
I’m going to die
Yet inside i know I’m not
It feels so real
WAKE ME UP

Artist's Description

This is a sort of sequel to my other piece of writing “Cubicle”.
It demonstrates the dreams someone goes through after a traumatic experience like rape.
