Nightmares Be Still

Posted on Sep 21, 2012


No sleep for weeks now
Too much on the mind
Life invades erratic sleep
Disturbed dreams play

Nightmares be still
Please go away
Insidious thoughts stab
At what little peace to be had

No escape anywhere
Through doors and clouds
And castles of sponge
Outside world takes the land of dreams

Frozen to the spot
Awake yet asleep
Something wicked in the room
Foetid breath falls foul

Nightmares be still!
Oh nightmares please leave!
Go from here
Let there be peace…
