Wednesday Stories: Blue Shoes

black_beauty1[1]
Nightmare was a mare 
born of a mare in the dead of the night
Born ready to rip through the green field 
that sits behind the lids of the sleeping
dreaming.
Born ready to conquer the dark stallion
sweet dreams 
that robbed the sleeping of any reality
leaving them hopefully dreaming
in the day
and when the day does not see those sweet dreams come to pass
they only wait for sleep...
and soon their lives become one big sleep
as they sit and wait for sweet dreams
all day
all night
to come in his blue shoes
as he smiles
and carries the dreaming
into the night
forever.

Until nightmare 
rips through the green field that sits behind the lids of the sleeping
ready
to conquer
the dark stallion called sweet dreams.
ready
to win
and that was all she was born for
the mare born to a mare in the dead of the night
underneath the brightest star 
Nightmare.
was only born
for such a time as this...
such a time when sweet dreams had turned bad.
and rotted the teeth of the sleeping
without them even knowing.
