Cries wake the sleeper

Dark dreams like carrion flies

Serving their purpose

Impinging on consciousness

Picking the bones from the night


Hidden fears unveiled

Dawn laughs at their illusions

Become transparent

Ephemeral monsters flee

In the clear light of morning


For Colleen’s poetry challenge
