last night my dream was terror
true nightmare
shadows beneath the water’s surface
boat is sinking
me and the crew in panic
the monsters circle closer
sea salt does not sting my eyes
submerged, I watch our coming doom
last night terror was my dream
my life is precious
thankfully I’m safe
but still I feel the fear
as a monster circles closer
a shadow beneath the surface
