 Noises at my bedroom door,
sounds I've never heard before.
Shadows dance upon my wall,
haunting me when night-time falls.

Within the confines of my room,
I feel that I will vanish soon;
Nothing seems to make much sense,
confusion numbs my feeble head.
Sleep is always far away,
I wish that I could rest today;
Gripped by fear, I carry on,
in a world where everything seems wrong.
Day by day and week by week,
I struggle with the words to speak;
I wish that I could go away,
to deal with my despair and pain.
 Scared; I cling to God above,
and pray this war will soon be won;
Alone I cannot fight this fight,
I need God's strength and awesome might.


Author's Notes:
I am experiencing severe withdrawals from the lack of my medication.  This is how I feel.

Hey there sis. I haven't been in here for quite a while. I'm hoping to post more poetry here. I hope all is well and you get better soon my dear friend. I've missed you dearly. I also miss talking to you and collabing together. Well done. :O) Keep up with the great work. Keep on penning. Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful and creative talents with us. We all truly appreciate it.

I can empathize with you, but the cause of my misery is lack of sleep due to working at night and my grandmother expecting me not to 'sleep the day away' despite it only being roughly 5-6 hours. I'm trying to cope with it, but it feels so stifling...
