Night Terrors

By Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

Darkness swallows my fear
the gloom smothers my dreams
Moonless nights call forth
from within me – something

Barefoot stepping on branches
sharp further and further into a
Noiseless universe pulling
me into a void of – nothingness

Night so dark it drips
from my own bare limbs
Inky blackness inhaled
fills mouth and nose – drowning

Down, down into the black abyss
straining to stay on top
Sucking me roughly to the bottom
where I emerge – anew
