Nightmare Flower by Liyona

Eat this

just a taste

and your dreams will come true


little did I know

the druid

was a demon

and I fell


in my



no eye could behold

no ear could hear

how the darkness

pinned my body

to the fear that

I once knew as a child


So captivated by the ever

dying feeling

falling farther

and farther

until I no longer recognized

any part

of my former self


I listened

I tasted

and the nightmare flower

made the ever

haunting dream

come true

This poem is inspired by the Monster She Wrote, Prompt Challenge: Day 14- Nightmare Flower. I will be trying to follow this prompt challenge as much as I can throughout the month of October!
