Death in a Dream
by DewRina Lee
There was no existence
As darkness tumbled around me.
My feet balanced on nothing
And my eyes perceived nothing
But my ears heard the unmistakable cries
Of the devil.
There was nothing to grasp
And no air to freely flow through me—
There was only a sound,
A sound that repeatedly taunted me—
Testing my fears
And deafening my ears.
There was nothing about
But the voice was coming close;
I sensed the cold chill that crept from my feet
To my heart
And I suffered while its claws slithered over my skin,
Leaving me numb and whimpering.
There was no one
And I have become empty inside
I felt the tightness of my throat closing up—
Blood stopped coursing through my mapped veins—
I gave in;
For I will never go back to that hellish place.
Alas, I am awake!
