I feel fear

I can smell it

Taste it

I can even hear it

In the darkness

When there’s nothing else to distract you

And you lie there to find fault

For sleep won’t come

Sleep will never come

To one who cannot rest,

You cannot lie to yourself without effort

When the dark is your only comfort

When you lie down between the sheets and

Swear never to get up again

But then comes the morning

And up with a smile

You greet the coming day,

The same as the next

And the one after

Scars are just the same to,

When will they heal

Or will they stay forever to remind you,

Of a past you cannot forget

These are not scars on the wrist

But scars of white, buried deep within memories

That exist where the demons haunt

Deep in the shadows

Coming out in the darkness

And not leaving

Even in the light.

This is my first year since being an adult that I sleep at night. I used to only sleep in the day because I had night terror. The worst part for me was my night terror became day dreams too. I finally put my fears to rest somewhat and I hope you will too. Thats if this poem is about you..... If its not then let me just say GREAT POEM!!!
