Recollections of terror in the night, thankfully not in recent times.

Visions in the dark of night

Hands that held my throat so tight

iron-like grip – terrible sight

Panic seized my heart

~~~~

Demonic voices played in head

“Isn’t it time that you were dead ?”

Filled with such an awesome dread

Pierced by fiery dart

~~~~

No relief could there be found

Nightly heard that awful sound

choking, in the dark surround

Waking with a start

~~~~

Pounding heart, sweaty brow

Quaking body – feel it now

Playing mind games and somehow

Refusing to depart

~~~~

Recurring nightmare didn’t cease

‘Til in prayer – I begged release

Turning to the Prince of Peace –

calm He did impart
