Head sweat drenched





All I have


I awake in fright
Not quite morning
Sometime still in the
Middle of the night
The bed tore up
Head sweat drenched
Sheets wrapped wound
Round me tight
Nightmares
All I have
Of you
Still

Breathe deep
Quiet the beast
Raging inside my chest
Hart hurting needs a rest
This fight or flight response
Not quite right for tonight
Sheets wrapped wound
Round me tight
Nightmares
All I have
Of you
Still

I have so many nights like this, sometimes I wonder why try sleep at all. Here's to more serenity in our nights and lives sweet friend! (Hugs)Indigo

Thinking Of You

Perhaps one day soon
you will have a simple night,
the beasts gone elsewhere
instead of eating
your shredded sinews.

I saw
where you want a meal
from me instead of
my prayers or thoughts of you.
How about this one?

I spent the night with my friend Kimmy last weekend. We slept in a trundle bed like we were still 5 :) In the morning she asked how I slept. "Fine" I said, having taken my sleeping pills. "You did not sleep fine." she said. I toss, I turn, I talk in my sleep, I scream. I fight my demons by day and night it seems. One day we will win Chris. I imagine your health has as much to do with it as anything these days. Wishing you peace and healing friend...and perhaps some soft arms to sleep within.
