Given is the poem and the story:

Title-Nightmare of a mom

My kid with a doll slowly twiddles
Matching to a song from piano she diddles

She taps her little feet and turns around
She smiles and how it conquers I can't expound

Suddenly she grows and grows to a maiden!
My chick is now ready to fly with hopes laden

For a while, spots of blood appear in her frock
Fire of womanhood has sooted the crock

Though beauty boils over! See her cheeks blush
Bosoms rise in the youth which is lush

The floor suddenly cracks and widens the crack
She is still turning around not hearing the clack

I warn her but still she dances in crave
She turns, turns and slips into a deep grave

I can hear my heartbeats as I look inside
Hardly can see as darkness does hide

Smutty dogs carry flesh in their mouths so wild
Whom should I ask? Where are you my child?


Story-This is a fusion of a dream and reality which starts from the scene where a middle aged mom sitting on a chair in an evening and relaxing. She hears a piano music and when she looks she sees a doll which turns around. When she looks at that more, doll transforms to her daughter when she was a kid (3-4 yr old)playing or smiling. Suddenly she grows big and turns into a [url removed, login to view] dances and turns violently and doesn't hear her mom's [url removed, login to view] is the crucial part of the song where the mood should dramatically change as here is the theme of nightmare comes. So it should create a fear too in listener. The teenage girl who is turning, turns so violently with expressions in her face and after the turn, the floor cracks and she herself and all the things in the room fall into that big grave like fissure which has formed in the room.

following lines depict this part:

"The floor suddenly cracks and widens the crack
She is still turning around not hearing the clack

I warn her but still she dances in crave
She turns, turns and slips into a deep grave"--These lines could be of a high pitch and a fearful tone.

The mom walks down to the darkness(into the fissure in the room) to find her daughter. But all she could see was one guy
who was walking out from darkness and when showed her girls photo and asked, he simply nods his head and walks away but with a cunning [url removed, login to view] cries loudly(in mind. But the emotion is so high that this line requires a high pitch and high emotion). The whole song what I expect should be of a really catchy one which conveys strong emotions, nostalgia, fear and sadness.
