“SLEEP” A DARK POEM

_SLEEP_ A DARK POEM

 

Sleep…

 

Deep in the darkest place there is no sleep

 

No rest or ease of mind

 

No rest

 

No dreams of clouds or fantastic places

 

No rest

 

Now I  only dream of bad things

 

Memories that are not my own

 

Not me

 

Not  me in my dreams

 

Only a stranger

 

Someone stranger than me

 

A duality that reaches for love but claws at it with reckless abandon

 

A animal in a cage not of his making who holds the key to his own cell

 

A cage with no walls yet a prison still it makes

 

A Shadow Me

 

Split into many halves

 

A Shadow Me that creeps in from the dark

 

Into the waking world  it crawls and shouts vile words at the world around it

 

Makes me  feel things that I immediately regret…

 

Just think!

 

Think and hold onto me myself and the very core of who I am

 

There is light wanting to spill out like water from a fountain

 

I feel the light but The Dark traces what it wants of me with sharp claws making sounds like nails on a chalkboard…

 

Is it too late?

 

The grin is already on my face and the evil words spill out with sharp points

 

This is not me I repeat ad nauseam

 

This is not me

 

This is not me

 

This is not

 

me
