Pesadilla

Enlight91

Pottery by Poet Rummager

I pull you close.

You tell me no –

Not tonight.

Just one little kiss.

I smell your sweat.

It whets my appetite.

You scare me,

You whisper

As I make you mine.

I inhale your scream.

Tentacles unwind.

I pierce your thoughts

Like a scalpel to your brain.

I slice off sweet dreams

And toss them away.

Say my name!

I insist.

You cover your eyes.

Say my name!

I seethe.

You refuse.

I grit my teeth.

I bite.

Pesadilla!

You shriek.

You wake in the night.

Pesadilla!

You shout.

I’m aroused

By your fright.

Pesadilla!

You screech.

I laugh with unfettered delight.

Don’t ever forget my name.

I sigh as you give up the fight.

 

*Pesadilla means nightmare in Spanish.
