Scared to sleep.

Post by Closeyclo » Sat Mar 02, 2019 1:42 am

There may not be monsters under my bed.
But there are so many trapped inside my head.
And I cannot sleep, I must stay awake.
Lest leave my soul open for them to take.
So write another poem, watch another show.
Push your mind harder if it starts to slow.
Those monsters are waiting, arms out long.
To drag you back where you belong.
Hell is nearing, you can hear the roar.
The demons have come to settle their score.
So sit up soldier, alert on high.
Ignore the time and the darkening sky.
Don't let yourself get trapped in dreams.
And fall apart at your fraying seams.
With eyes wide open you will not see.
Just how cruel those dreams can be.
Keep in control and do not rest.
You cannot hope to pass this test.
Your nightmares are strong but you are weak.
And if you sleep, your outlook's bleak.
A champion is defined not by their wins but by how they can recover when they fall.
