I thought the title worked well to contrast the poem here. Tulips are my favorite flower, but to use something so beautiful as a metaphor is perfect. It's like they are crushing everything hopeful this child has in their life. To me this says, all of their nightmares are waiting for them to fall asleep. Like sleep is a very dangerous thing. Usually real life is a bad place to be, bit you combine the two together it seems. And the demons will make you "happy". Just like depression taking over your life, the demons come back every night to make things a lot worse. Excellent write!
