Written about a nightmare I had recently. I've had nightmares about him for years, he's no-one I know, but this nightmare seemed more vivid than the others and I felt I needed to write about it. The part about the dog might seem irrelevant but it was part of the dream so I left it in. Please pardon the lack of punctuation.

I've seen him before

He haunts my dreams

When I'm scared

I close my eyes and he's there

Whitest skin and blackened eyes

I'm walking at night

On streets I don't know

No traffic

Just people

A dog appears

Invades my space

I'm suddenly nervous

I keep walking

Someone walks by

I'm slammed against the wall

It's him

His hand at my throat

We've been here before he says

I close my eyes

I'm awake

But he's still there

At the corner of my eye

I've seen him before

He haunts my dreams

When I'm scared

I close my eyes and he's there

Cool. It's a very surreal piece to me this because I don't even have to read it to see it vividly.
