This is our word from Sammi today for the weekend writing prompt.
Sleep evades us as we lie half awake and allow
Overnight dreams to torment and tease,
Mocking us in their absence.
Night demons share our consciousness,
Accompanying the soul in its solitude,
Mourning the loss of peace and refreshed mind,
Burying our wants and desires amidst
Ultimate wishes of curtained evenings,
Longing for sleep, all that is left is
Intrepid yearning, strong and invasive,
Scattered amongst the stars on the night sky,
Tangible in darkness, it waits alone.
