Erratic Darkness

This short is about my adult night terrors and the feelings of emptiness, fear and dread. Waking up, my husband’s hand still in mine, I drift back off to sleep feeling safe, feeling loved.

Suggested audio: Florence and the Machine – Stand By Me

Had that dream again

In the dead

Of the night

Heard that voice again

In my head

Not in film

 

 

My eyes now black

Empty void

Seeing nothing

Blood red burned to ash

Ceased flowing

Stagnant heart

 

 

Memories fleeting past

Erratic thoughts

Hallucinations

Darkness folds around me

Lightness fades

Sinking slowly

 

 

In this shell feeling Hell

Where is Heaven

Is it you?

I am lonely beside you

I need to wake

Love me… please
