Awake in Nightmares – Sonnet
There’s no one in the control room;
directing any flame of light.
Dark shadows ready to consume;
the mindless empty of the flight.
Unable to escape the doom -
foreboding thoughts tied up in fright.
Old premonitions come alive -
alerting mind’s eye to survive.
Exotic faces lay in wait,
beyond the sound of voiceless screams -
releasing shivers down the spine.
Deep crevices in eyes dilate;
erasing lines from truth or dreams -
caught in the spiral of decline.
These are vibrations cursed in hate,
that rupture ears allowing streams
of bloody red to desecrate;
and split what is real at the seams.
Awake within the nightmare’s gate
unleashing fears of wild extremes.
