Only in Nightmares

They came
insinuating themselves
into my life,
shooting words of venom
into my mind . . .
raked my soul,
over flames of hot coals,
tortured my flesh,
with ill founded barbs,
stripped me of known attachments
to live in a world alien
to my understanding,
putting shackles on my spirit,
and now . . .
only now . . .
they are the nightmares
I dream but from which
I awaken.
