A Nightmare

Report Story

The Eight point star

I keep waking up in the dark,

Though I swear I nap in the light.

Like that night I dreamt of the park...

I told them I wanted no fight.

These knights of eight each stood around

Their blade made a star with equal points,

They thought this symbol kept me bound

After which all I'd want was their blood as paints.

So I did raise my hand and ask them to leave,

This nigh to enjoy is all I had and still they stood

So I closed my hand and you could hear them heave

As their bodies landed, this isn't all I could

Do I knew it was me playing, teasing the knights.

I then came to them one by one,

Each made the next less fun

And soon enough once again I had the night.

Though I stood in that field, no longer just green

And found that it did not feel the same with red.

After the violence the field had see,

It's almost as though I did spoil it with the dead.
