This is based on a recurring dream.

Tonight I walk a darkened passage
Fearing that which creeps behind
As these questions grow insistent
Probing deep into my mind
I cry out into blackness
But hear only echoed screams
Then the thing leaps from behind me
Overtakes me and my dreams
Fighting, falling, suffocating
And I know I soon will break
Then light falls upon my nightmare
It lets go and I awake
Still I fear that lonely passage
That I can't escape at night
Haunted by those vicious questions
Not quite banished by the light.
