You quiver and your lip trembles
Staring with the fear in your eyes
That's just what it is
It's the fear.
You can't escape it
And it haunts every corner of your mind.
Its fingers caress you softly.
It whispers your name.
You try to run but it's faster than you.
It grabs your ankle and pulls you down.
Dragging your screaming body
To the pits of torment.
Mephistopheles calls you
And you whisper in despair
"Is there nothing to chase away my nightmares?"
