In a dream I was surrounded by darkness
It was a cold vast emptiness
The creeping feeling of things at my feet
In this void emptiness consuming me
I felt the pain in my legs
a numbing and painful bleeding
My body tingles and starts to lose feeling.
Voices echo in the dark,
As a cold knife stabs me in the back
Laughter like children but somehow sinister
I cannot see, its getting hard to breathe.
The voices get more and more loud
Can't try to block them out their words are just sounds
Something is tearing at my back
Above me a dim light is cast
As I look into it the brightness shines
The voices hiss and cry.
I see the teeth and claws beneath me
Stained in red from my blood they've shed
My wings are darkening and appear dead.
I cannot fly, fear to get out alive
I reach towards the light, stretching my limbs and I fight.
Reaching for something I cannot see but know is there,
Only hope can take me away from here
