it all started but moments ago i was wrenched from the thralls of a blissful dream and dumped in the bitter dregs of reality I can almost taste the sweetness of fantasy turn sour as this living nightmare manifests A scream! shreds through the night air ripping the silence apart and piercing deep into my slumbering heart I twist through the tangle of sheets in my tent flashing my phonelight about, searching... but no, I'm alone! Oh no! my frantic heart skips a beat and in that beat all becomes clear That scream came from her!
duplicitous woods with offers either side of midnight pleasures before, horrors after
And now while i struggle through this tangled undergrowth i can hear the whimpering pleas of her frightened voice She's still alive! that strengthens my resolve i slow my motions and stifle the slightest sounds the night creatures are silent, not a single cricket chirps i'm armed as well as i could be stone in left! clubbing branch in right! i see three others in that twilit clearing standing around her kneeling frame she's alive! that's all i need to know! i leap out!
love's adrenaline inflamed by pleasures of night reckless and brave
I hear the calls and shouts as my left hand strikes the nearest head Beth runs towards me waving her hands, screaming for me to stop! lights blaze and glare all around! I see cartons of beer! I see a cake! Was this my birthday surprise?! I look down Greg is dead! and all is silent!
