Sleep has been eluding me,
stealing the security of dreams,
leaving me to dwell in my mind;
What could this be?
Lying awake for hours
losing my sanity slowly,
twisting the sheets around my body,
as thoughts assault my heart.
Bandits appear in the night
hands thieving material and life
creating fear that chills the bone,
much like my thoughts of you.
How did this happen?
A beautiful existence turned toward chaos,
now we are struggling for purchase on the precipice.
What is in my heart.
Blurry around the edges
are images of you,
Of me; dare I say it, us.
What am I to do?
Conflicted fear courses through my veins,
hidden behind tired eyes,
aching in a writer’s hand,
voices echo in my brain, chanting always for me to hear.
“Sleep now, love”
