You sit silently, painfully pondering, torn.

Wondering if your nightmares will stop.

You shake as you start awake,

Twisting beneath the covers, eyes flickering.

Panic seizes your heart, bile rising.

You hold it back, barely; panting.

You watch quietly as shadows dance.

Glad for your freedom from dreams.

You turn on your side, sighing,

Believing that your torment is over...

But that is when you realize,

As the ceiling sprouts blooded eyes

And as the walls crumble. That

Your terror has only just begun...

So run little rabbit, run away.

Or it won't be fun, this game we play...

Fave it if you enjoyed it (^w^)/ I'll do more that way!

Alright, so here's a little something I like to call a six-word series. It's a bit of an extension from a six-word story and it was brought to me by my dear friend :icon7demented:

I realised after seeing his six-word series that it is a format that is both challenging and yet inspiring. Telling a story with a restriction of six words at a time.

I'll add an additional rule to this however. Only the last line doesn't have to follow this format. Why? Because it helps you create more impact and properly finish off the poem!

So do give it a shot, you might like it in the end :'3

Do your own six-word series on any topic. It's quite fun!

This reminds me of the movie House of 1000 Corpses.

Excellent poem, it reads like lyrics to a metal song and and paints a  surreal and creepy picture inception style nightmare. This poem skitters right into favorites folders and makes the items next to it nervous. :)
