The Butterflies- A Poem

The Butterflies
K.N. Lee
 
The butterflies 
Buzz buzz
Like busy bees
Inside
My nightmares 
Haunt without mercy
There is nowhere to hide

One wink of sleep
And I fall
Down down
With screams of terror
Clutching 
Grasping
For anything
Sobbing
Gasping
What horrors will tonight bring?
 
 
As I drift into the dark
Fear creeps in
And fills my heart
This world is odd
Quite strange
People I don't know
Friends without names
Villains and foes
With sharp teeth
And black eyes
Greet me with pain
And promises to terrorize

The butterflies 
Buzz buzz
Warning 
And beckoning too
I grab a hold of its glittering wings
And let it fly me to somewhere new
