Cigarette smokes fills my nostrils as my head rests on my pillow. Wet cheeks begin to warm as my anxiety intensifies. 2:30am No sleep Hungry but full Tired but overwhelmed with insomnia
Mirrors surround me as I try and close my eyes but gently weep. The glare so vivid, I can still see the monsters watch me sleep. Oh wait, their inside my head. 4:27am Hands in my hair Legs won’t stay still Tongue is begging for a drink. I’m hopeless.
When will the nightmares stop? Will I ever be able to dream without seeing a glimpse of my past? Where can I hide from my demons? Why do i let myself get this down? How do I make the loud quiet? I’m hopeless.
7:21am and finally fell asleep. The light shining through the window breathes warmth on my bare feet. Another day, another reminder that darkness will fall once again. My eyes will remain open until I am no more.
