Nightmare’s Smile

Nightmare’s Smile

I’m in the middle of nowhere
No. I’m in nowhere, nothing, negative space
Everything’s white except for a figure in the distance
I begin running towards this figure, but it keeps getting farther and farther and farther away
Until suddenly everything closes in around me, surrounding me in a blinding white sheet of light
And this figure is right in front of me
Hanging
Dangling on a cord of old rope
It’s too bright to make out who it is, but it’s a girl
I’ve no idea who this is, and I can only guess it is someone I do not know
Yet she seems so familiar
It pains me to see her there
Swaying to no breeze in this no-man’s land
I fall to my knees
Crying
And just like that, it was dark again
Peaceful for once
I opened my eyes, but instead of deep serenity
I saw horror
Terror
Bloody ticks counting down how many lives were being lost by the second
That red fluid dripping down my arms
Pumping out of my heart like a machine
Extracting that sweet, sweet nectar
Screaming faces swarming upon me
Cackling at my misfortune
Then, blackness
Silence
Terrible
Awful silence
I scratched at my arms, but instead of feeling scars
My skin began tearing off in pieces
Chunks of flesh dropping through the invisible floor below me
Deep into the void
Each piece slowly morphing into some demonic entity
Sucking my soul out from within me
And suddenly I was back there
In front of that lone, swinging body
But this time
She smiled
Only her lips visible
Grinning at me
Licking her bloody fangs with glee
I tried to run, but I was only pulled closer
I couldn’t call for help, it wouldn’t matter anyways
Nobody was around but the demons
They surrounded us, all licking their lips like starving wolves
And as I slipped into her grasp
I felt her fangs bite deep down into my neck
I could feel my blood flowing freely
As I faded to black
I saw one last thing
Her smile
