    I turn back to see that nothing is there, though I run even harder
    I feel as if I am scared, but of what puzzle my frantic mind
    My eyes shift to the door that is in front of me
    I reach for the knob but the door moves farther away

    I release a scream of frustration for I know that it is getting closer
    I run even faster, though my effort is only pointless
    As I feel the essence of it creep right upon my back
    It grabs a hold of me and turns me face to face

    As I was shocked in horror of what I saw
    For I was scared of something that I should not be
    It looked me dead into my eyes as I uttered the words
    “It was me I was afraid of...” My eyes open, and I was awake

    Trying to find my way out of here.

    Needles coming after me,
    Spiders spinning their webs,
    I'm trying so hard to flee,
    But my feet so ever slowly, ebbs.

    With the ground so far down,
    As I am peering over the edge,
    Here I am, wearing my crown,
    Stuck between a wedge.

    You speak to me,
    But I cannot talk,
    Why can you not see,
    That I can barely walk?

    I walk ahead,
    Only to be brought back,
    I watch the fire as it begins to spread,
    Waiting for the attack.

    When you run away,
    I try to look for you,
    But I cannot find my way,
    As the darkened sky loses its blue.

    But now that I've awoken,
    Drenched in sweat,
    My heart has been broken,
    As I wipe away the threat.

    The bodies burning

    I look down towards
    The right hand of Judgement
    The left hand of Wrath

    I turn around to see
    The red skies falling
    The red ground decaying

    I find myself running
    Away from my genocide
    Away from my fear

    I wake up gasping
    For the glorious day
    For the nightmare's end

    Should I open it?

    Is it safety or
    an unspeakable horror on the other side.

    The nob turns slowly
    but my hand has not yet grasped it.
    I back away slowly
    and the edge of the door seems to be following.

    The doorway is darkened in a fog-like shadow
    and my knees start to shake.
    It's coming for me this I know
    and it wants me for my soul is what it shall take.

    The walls begin to grow dark
    and my palms start to sweat.
    It's been following me
    but my heart and soul it will not get.

    It's an empty feeling
    filled with pain and grief.
    It will steal my heart
    because it is a love thief.

    It's a thing called lovelessness
    and it seeks to keep you alone
    and heartless
    and your heartbeats it shall postpone.

    The hour is late.
    The playground of your mind awaits.
    Anticipate....
    Resting bones just can not wait.

    Oh, but my sweet girls and boys...
    ... so quickly fantasy deploys.
    Reality becomes white noise.
    Know only my voice,
    my voice.
    my voice.

    Unknown is the destination.
    Darkness, thick like perspiration.
    Breathing quickens. Heart is racing.
    A silent scream of desperation.

    Tossing, turning. No escaping.
    Your sinking hole continues gaping.
    Thoughts unleashed, can leave you shaking.
    Evil, murderous, and raping...

    Raping of your innocence.
    You cry out for this curse to lift.
    But, not a sound will leave your lips.
    So tears just drip.
    and drip.
    and drip.

    Into your cotton pillowcase.
    Which soon encounters your embrace.
    With a look of horror on your face.
    You look around your empty space.

    Confused and so disoriented.
    Feeling as if you've been tormented.
    Remembering all the sick, demented.
    Yet this memory fades in seconds.

    Forgetting what has just occurred.
    And all that's left is merely blurred.
    Yet, still don't forget a word.
    This voice you heard.
    you heard.
    you heard...

    ...this twisted lullaby.

    And in case you were wondering, yes, I did color coat the usernames in correspondence with the poll.

    As if its NOT going to be obvious who I voted for ^^

    This was hard. Not just because all the pieces were decent, but because there was a lot of similarity in a few of them. Lots of running really fast, and doorways, and ... fire.... Crazy.

    I picked the one I could FEEL the most.

    Now, I sure hope I'm not the only voter. I would cry.

    Oh and Zev, I totally appreciate the color on the names... makes 'em stand out. Can I offer a suggestion to you or Hammer or whoever is doing the voting threads? I think it would be cool if we could view the titles along with the entries... I can't speak for the other writers... But sometimes my titles are very important to my pieces.
    ... Not Ever Again...
