these nights

˜

nights like these tear open scars –

leave a burning, seething pain

and

drown my thoughts in memories

of a person

i wish

would fade away.

˜

each time i close my eyes to sleep

he is standing over me –

with a blade so sharp

it cuts to the bone;

i can do nothing to resist

but

bleed.

˜

i DO keep waiting for the night to come

when he no longer shows his face –

when he can no longer stab me

through the heart

and

hold my soul at bay.

˜

however

˜

until the time arrives

in which

he is nowhere to be seen,

i will prepare for battle

every night

in hopes

that i can

sleep.

    I am overtaken, unmistaken, transported in time.
