Awakening

There is a moment on awakening
When all things seem to pause
Dreams disappear into dust
Thoughts linger like memories
Demons freeze and crumble
Monsters turn and hide
Spirits slip away
Breath starts to quicken
Hearts skip to the pace
Lungs draw in daggers
Limbs tighten their grip
Eyes stretch and focus
Reality is awaiting
Fantasy is put to rest
Another day is beginning
Another test after test
