Music. Breathing. Another nightmare. Jesus save me from myself. Scary things in the dark. Hairy things crawling inside the walls. Things of my own unwanted invention. An accidental Frankenstein. Powers hidden unhidden, revealed to no one. It’s all in my head, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t real.
Music. Breathing. Calm returns. The heart monitor stops beeping. I am safe again. The dreams will not take my life tonight. I’ve won another dawn. The rising sun floods my little room and warms my eyes. Off to a quiet sleep. Nightmares only happen behind cold eyes. Sunshine dreams have no fear.
