You know how you always wake up the same time every night...Well here is my take on it. Also, I've added an audio version, tried to make it creepy. I hope it plays for you.

The Dream Stealer


When the world was young,
I was already ancient.
Your father's fathers watched in awe,
as I pulled the sun across the sky,
and played my games among the stars.
They wrote songs and built alters in tribute,
in an attempt to appease me,
to know me, to control me...
As if.

Surely you think me weaker now,
a victim of technology, arrogance.
For now you understand the stars,
and have power over time and space.
But still you shudder,
as I walk across your grave.
And feel your heart skip and race,
when you glimpse me out the corner of your eye,
or feel my frigid breath against your neck.

Like a psychic seismic wave,
I ride the night.
I call out in the darkness,
and the dogs bark, and cats howl.
I inhale the breath of life,
and exhale the whisper of death.
I'm the ringing in your ears.
In the stillness and the inky black,
I dance across the inside of your eyelids.

I never borrow, but take what I want.
Now that you are so, so many,
I need but a small piece from each of you.
You only imagine that you are safe,
But I invade your sleep,
and steal your dreams.
A chill as I tap you on the shoulder,
you roll over, suddenly wide awake...
It's 3 am.
Again...
