Nightmare

She waited for the nightmare to pass

She thought if she could sleep comfortably Enough

If she could wrap the blankets around her bare, torn skin tightly Enough

If she could close her eyes and keep them closed for long Enough

She could tire away the demons of her soul

She thought

Eventually their claws would lose their grips

That they would find a way to fall asleep

Eventually her eyes would get tired of being shut closed

And be hungry for touching the world she was too afraid to step close to

Eventually

Eventually

The nightmare would find a way to call itself a new name

In her dreams
