Emily has nightmares...

She's dreaming in shades of grey
Watching her bitter thoughts
Wash away
With hopes, that tomorrow
Will be better

She's wrapped in her favorite
Faded sweater
The one wove with
blood-stained yarn
Holes in the elbows
And an unsigned card

The one that still vainly shields
her fragile soul
As her demons tear outward
With razored claws

She hides away, nearly unseen
As the light cowards astray
And night creeps in as shadows
Dance on the walls and sounds
Leave the once-filled halls

Emily fears the cryptic warnings
Of what crawls beneath her bed
And stalks the skies
Waiting for her to close
Her eyes

Emily cries.
Hating the night.
She clings to vanishing
Warmth, with little fight

Trembling in her relentless

Poor Emily dies tonight.
