Night terrors

It shared the face
of my good friend
the attack was sudden

its fangs leaped at me
I held it off
hands around its neck

rolling down the path
cobblestones hitting
my back and arms

I used every
ounce of energy
trying to wring

its skinny neck
before help reached me
I woke

drenched in sweat
bruised and bleeding
tied up in my bed sheets

I wrestled a demon
