Frozen Helplessly


These figures dance upon my walls,
Mocking me with their smirks and laughs.
Not knowing what else to do,
I take covers under the sheets and say my prayers.

Sneak a peak to see them dancing along,
Laughing and smiling.
I can feel their eyes on me,
Digging deeper and deeper into my soul.

Do I scream?
Do I lay here still?
Where do I go?
What do I do?

I open my mouth to no words nor sound,
Just silence all around.
Just try and scream for help,
But no noise comes out.

I lay there frozen and stuck,
Not knowing what to do.
They get closer and closer,
Entering my soul with their eyes.

As I close my eyes,
I can feel them approach my frozen body.
Quick, pull the covers over my face,
Now they can't harm me.

Or at least that's what I thought.
They are tugging and pulling,
Trying to get the covers off my face.
But I put up a fight.

I begin to kick and shout for help,
Telling them to get away and get off.
The covers are removed from my face,
Eyes clenched shut I scream 'Who are you? ! '

'Sweetie it's just a bad dream.'
I opened my eyes slowly but surely.
It was my mother,
Her hand on my shoulder comforting me.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
