This one was written a little faster than my other mask stories. I'm still pleased with my work on it, though.

The Mask of Insomnia and Horrifying Visions

This one keeps your eyes wide open. Hundreds of daggers pulling your eyelids open, dirks searing your flesh and needles in your cheeks.
The sword in your mouth.
The sword in your mouth.
What do you see?
Hmm?
You don’t want to share?
WHY NOT!?
Isn’t it wonderful?
The daggers mean nothing when you see it.
All these potentials,
All these
Realities.
All of them horrifying.
Get some rest, damn it.
You need it.
It’ll just keep haunting you-
Unless
Unless
UNLESS
it’s all real.
Then it’ll just haunt you while you sleep.
What do you see?
A bloodbath
Carnage
Death
All your doing.
In a way
You kind of want it to be real.
This is the mask of insomnia,
But it is filled with.
RAGE
You can’t look away, else the sword will cut you;
The dirks twisting and turning,
The needles digging.
So you look on
Your mouth too full of steel to scream for help.
Help you need.
Help you need to get away from
THE MASK OF INSOMNIA AND HORRIFYING VISIONS
It’ll hurt a lot when it comes off.
If it comes off.
