This is the fifth of five poems I wrote when I was 14 and off in the seminary, studying to be a Catholic priest. (The first two were at the beginning of this series.)

NIGHTMARE 

deep in your head
deep in your mind
a shadow peers out
through an open lid

it howls at the walls 
that encase your head
it scrapes at the bones 
of your skull

it yearns for the day
of your body's decay
it waits for the death 
of your soul

do you run, do you hide
do you try to forget
the shadow is faster yet
