The Darkest Nights

Have you ever dreamt a terrifying dream
rising up at night in unsuspecting sleep
and awakened in a cold sweat
with your heart racing
to realize
the horror is within yourself
and nowhere can you hide

the dream is not innocent in intent
IT knows

how to terrorize, exact and unerring
leaving secret, inner doors standing wide open
in fear and pain, electrifying
magnetically it draws us deep inside ourselves

to release a wealth of feelings
that unconscious, block the flow of life
So dream your terrifying dreams
Let them set you free with remembered agony

Dare to live
with the terror evoked

so that with morning's dawning light
you may let go of endless night
and come to know yourself as soul
a point of light in growing whole
