A figment of the imagination they say,

An unreal image that resides in your head.

But I am the storm that comes at night,

Toying with your mind like a ragdoll.

I am the destructive beast,

Rampaging your sweet dreams.

I rest in the closet at night,

Watching and stalking you.

I lay in the darkness under your bed,

The Boogeyman waiting to strike.

In the day I am imprisoned,

But at night I'm the bringer of fear.

You toss and you turn to escape,

But my power over you, you can't retreat.

Go ahead, scream and cry,

For it doesn't help when your grasped

By the Nightmare that I am.
