Nightmare

Warning, OUTRAGEOUS is a series of filth, swearing, insanity and gross images. The easily offended (and not so easily) and anyone under about 35 should stop reading right now!

Coal black dream like miner’s lung
Roof of mouth grips arid tongue

Images of bat that flitters
Washboard sounds of demon titters

Cotton sheet, so damp, so chill
Nameless dread a sour pill

Nail scrapes on window pane
Covers up then down again

Heat and cold take their turn
Flesh to freeze and then to burn

Skin a crawl with clammy beads
Revisited by shameful deeds

Sleep’s swift current sucks me under
Rationality to plunder

Up I bob for breath of air
Shadows give a waking scare

Down again for more unease
Morning, dawning, if you please…

At last, a sweet dream fills my eyes!
Oh dear God, it’s time to rise
