Poem: The Night Terror

three times I have faced the Terror
    at night on the gray edge of sleep

a portal through the universe opens
showing one instant of unfathomable horror

 the thunderous roar of approaching chaos
     the unbearable weight of forever loss

air and light snatched from the room

 I am left curled and lashed, with
racing heart and the inability to breathe
