Insomniatic Pill

I'm too afraid to sleep
and much too scared to fly.
I'm too ashamed to leap
and too dried out to cry.
I have a demon in my head
and an angel by my side.
There's a monster under my bed
and my confidence has died.
I hear a freight-train in my room,
and a creaking in the den..
I feel the icy breath of doom
so I sit down and count to ten.
I swallow the pill,
knock back a drink.
I shiver from the chill.
The dark lives thick as ink.
The thoughts are racing through my mind.
So I turn the light back on.
All I want is a dream that is kind.
My eyes shut tight and I am gone.

From the Library

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
