The Nightmare (Night Mare)

9/28/03

Drenched in my own sweat
Tasting my own blood
Running desperately through the night.

Breathless, exhausted
Yet still I must go on
My pursuer is near, tireless, and gaining.

At times I have tried to fight
Tried to turn and face my terror
And always the terror has won

Faster I must flee!
But my legs obey only reluctantly
Feeling as if they are mired in muck

My weapons are missing
And when I finally find the keys, my car won’t start.
All avenues seem closed to me

Then I notice The Dragon
The massive cruiser parked in a dark corner
The key dangling invitingly from the ignition

I vault onto the big machine
Prepared to easily make my escape
But the gleaming motorcycle doesn’t start

I freeze, and cock my head.
“Hmm,” I mumble as I dismount, “that’s interesting.”
Understanding has burst forth

The Dragon did not start
That was a mistake…that was my clue
That just does not happen you see

I spun to face my Nightmare
And she stood caught, exposed in her full glory
Black as midnight, heavily muscled, fully 20 hands high

Glowing orange eyes
Snorting fire from her nostrils
Pegasus wings spread wide

I smiled, a dangerous smile
She snorted in surprise
My reaction was not the one expected

I leapt, and wrapped strong arms about her neck
Felt her muscles ripple as she tried to dislodge me
Hung on as she bucked and reared

Finally I pull her head down to mine
Glare into the fiery eyes
Through gritted teeth I rasp hotly into her ear, “Mine…you are MINE!”

She stands stunned
Her resistance melts
She knows the truth of it

She has no power over me
None that I do not grant
The power is mine, as it has always been

But now I know…and the world is about to get even more interesting
With blinding clarity we both see
She is no longer an adversary

Rather, a new guardian has been born

As we fly into the night I grin
Bend low from her back and whisper to her once more,
“Mine…you are MINE!”

CUAgain,
Daniel Meyer
