nightmare

nightmares are trauma

exposed to you

when your guard is down

it can be the death of a loved one

or a reminder that someone you love

has moved on without you

but they attack in the night

assassins ready to strike

when you’ve convinced your mind

that it’s safe to relax

and lower it’s gates

and welcomes them in
