Waking Dreams

Dark horns are what I see

So dark I can only imagine its features

But I know that gaping mouth

That heavy stride

This demon of the night

Owns everything in this space

Confident I won't run

It leans on top of me

Possessing me, suffocating me

I'm chained up in these sheets

Eyes open, mouth unbound

But still I cannot speak

Paralyzed from the bottom up

A waking nightmare

I am a prisoner waiting for an executioner

With claws and teeth bearing my name

I'll tell you all my secrets

Before we play the dying game

Hot breath invading, it comes closer

I can smell the wrongness within

And I just know this is the end

No heroes come crashing in

I'm left helpless where I should be safe

But the sun begins to rise and something changes

The demon leans back on its haunches

Fear prickling its eyes

Light chases it back like it's prey

My fingers twitch and I'm released

I sigh as I finally take a full breath

The shadow creature has reached the wall

Plastered against it like glue

I watch as it silently creeps back out

Shutting the door quietly

And politely dismisses itself from my dreams

IceWinifredd: Hello there!I have to say that i really enjoyed this story a lot! I'm a huge fan of the Zodiac Signs and the things that come with them or things that we can add to them in literature to make them more interesting. I never thought that Capricorn would be the bad guy. Maybe Scorpio or Gemini or Vi...

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Dinzy: I enjoyed this story. It did not feel like a horror to me rather than a thriller/ fantasy mostly but it was great. I did not expect it to end like that. Although that is also a nice ending. It is a really great story if you are interested in reading a fantasy that makes you stay at the edge of yo...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...

Thirdy T. Quiambao: Full of twist and unexpected events. I recommend it to everyone who loves creepypasta stories and will give you the night rush of stories that will keep you awake at night. Do you want to make a story.

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...
