    I awake to the soulessness of the night,
    with the chilliness of my dreams
    still on my skin.
    I hear the sneers of my nightmares
    seeping through my mind.
    Fear leaves its bitter tang on my dry tongue.
    The visions of his demon face,
    flash before my eyes.
    Muffled cries echo through the dark,
    ending in a piercing,
    high pitched scream.
    I quake and tremble.
    Hiding beneath the softness
    of my only cover.
    Clammy hands wrap themselves
    around my shoulders.
    On the verge of unconsciousness,
    I realise the hands are yours.
    I feel your warm sleepy breath
    upon my cold neck,
    whispering
    that you are all that is here.
    Pulling me to the safety of your embrace,
    I remember you.
    They can't hurt me,
    they're just my night terrors.

    DID YOU KNOW: Only a very small number of adults suffer from nightmares and they occur to one of the following reasons:
    1. drug usage

    3. a trauma
