Night Terrors

It’s been a while since I woke at zaudtmc
4 a.m.

Nightmares of spiders falling
on my head
have always plagued me, so
Please forgive me for screaming.

I dreamt of a new terrifying evil –
The spiderfly – complete with all
The annoyance of a fly
And all the horror of a spider.

  1. I have zero skills at identifying evening, so I have no technical feedback. All I have now is a fascinated yet creepy crawly feeling about spider flies. I imagine they are like Vtols from the Perm Chronicles. Eek!


  2. I loved the change in pace halfway through this poem. I read through it quite rapidly until:

    Please forgive me for screaming.”

    It then allowed me to become absorbed in your nightmare. Scary and very real!

    Thanks for sharing Mel 🙂


  3. This was absolutely horrifying – the stuff of nightmares! And dang girl, give us a trigger warning next time before putting a spider at the top of the post, I almost jumped out of my chair!! 😉
