Sleep Tight

Not jumping out

Not behind a wall

Not following down the alley

Not banging on the window-

But when you’re alone

And when you’re head hits the pillow

And when the day was tough

And your struggles choke-

Slipping in

Sneaking through

Spectre arrived

Slithering unwelcome-

Twisting thoughts

Emotions torture

Lying whispers

Watering doubt-

Taking sleep

Bringing tears

Pieces shattered

Fighting the demon-

Word of the Day: Spectre
