Damaged calm, the worst yet
|nightmare anxiety right before opening the cracked door|
before sleep, i am now expecting to have a nightmare with a door.
(such thought before sleep is probably implanting the outcome)
a door that shocks my subconscious trip through a closed-eyed paradise
"all hell breaks loose".
anxiety heightens as the hand reaches out to open the cracked door,
disrupting panic as the fight begins.
