Night Guard

Night Guard

There comes one by night

A presence

Felt somewhere 

Between waking and sleeping

Deftly creeping

Into dreams

The way nightmares

Arrive unhindered

Eyes bright 

Seeing through the darkness

Sensing how easily

Dread is loomed

Between the sheets

Woven into the fabric

Like a shiver

That fends off the cold

The savage angel arrives

Guarding the night

With his teeth
