A Little Nightmare Poem

By Sara WilsonPublished about a month ago β€’ 1 min read
Top Story - June 2024

She waits till you're sleeping

safe and warm in your bed

then quietly sneaks inside

Cuz she needs to be fed

Her little blue eyes

can pierce through the dark

Her pearly white teeth

leave barely a mark

She pops out her fangs

Prepped and ready to feed

Then sinks them in deep

taking just what she needs

You won't feel a thing

So there's no need to scream

Her venom keeps you asleep

And you'll be lost in her dream

You wake up still tired

warm and cozy in bed

you might have a headache

maybe you hit your head?

But if ever you wake up

feeling a bit of a fright

And you see little red bumps

That's just Ruby's bite

    congratulations on TS. AND THIS IS WHY, EVEN AS A CHILD, I WAS TERRIFIED OF DOLLS!! Now, here I am at 77, and still terrified of dolls. Your poem was hilarious but brought my fear to a new realm. Still love your poem.

    This is excellent. Have so missed your little nightmares, Sara! I have all kinds of mixed feelings about Ruby lol. There was a slight sensual feel to this one - or maybe I'm just a weirdo! Congrats on the big ole Top Story, Ms Wilson! :)
