Is my poem ok?

I have to create a poem for english and my topic is about having a bad dream, I also need some metaphors 

BAD DREAM

I’m in desperation of a nightlight for my head,

For a monster embracing its vantablack soul,

My mother told me they were once beneath my bed,

But now they are stomping hard in my head,

It’s crimson eyes pierced at my vitality,

Swimming through my bloodstream to sprout in my veins,

Trying to reach my heart to sync as one,

I run for what seemed like miles,

But only to find out I am standing still,

It flourishes it’s tangible shadow and mimics every dance move,

I am paralysed with terror,

I’m in despair of the control of my own thoughts,

It brought immunity to all my treatments,

All the medicines and pills,

They won’t turn on the light,

The muscles in my body are willing to put out a fight,

Yet I am swallowed by fear of the towering fright,

It stalks me during the day and haunts me in my sleep,

My mind is its home,

And my soul is the weak it feasts on.

    You could add:

    "12 O Clock and Midnight strikes,

    Fear attacks your brain with spikes"

    That would be a metaphor.

      Because they are metaphorical spikes.

      English is a foreign language to me.  You have a greater edge.
