Longing for Daylight

 

Peace

That is all I want

The sweet release

From everything that haunts

My nightmares

And my dreams

Respite

From everything that hides

In the shadows of my mind

 

I want to be free

From those twisting corners of darkness

Those jagged screams

Reverberating off broken glass

I want to be blind

From the reflections that surround me

As I walk through the mirrored corridors

Of my thoughts

 

I step to my window

The curtains flutter

A chill snakes down my back

I shudder

 

The moon pulses above

Floating just beyond the bony grasp

Of the witch’s frail fingers

 

The breeze gives me a shove

Backwards into the room I stumble

The night has had enough

 

The wraiths hiss outside

Refusing to let me abide

Refusing to let my shivers subside

 

I collapse

Sink into the floor

Eyes wide open

I shake and twist

Wondering if I can take anymore

 

Moon beams sing through the curtains

Peeking through at my writhing form

 

The pain sharpens

The creatures of the night are strengthened

 

Their hungry growls thunder through the steely air

I struggle with all my might

 

To regain control

 

But I no longer have strength to fight

 

So I lay in agony

 

Longing for daylight
