He remembers nothing
He dreams
He wakes in silence
From screams

Dead air passes
His lips
And he breathes it back in

He is troubled
And sleep is a bitter comfort

    Powerful one into the depths of depression. Quite like the feel of this one. Love dark verses - as you may have noticed. ;) No but seriously, I really like this one. Especially the last line. A bitter comfort. So true. Another great one. Always, Laura

    I like the eeriness of this one, Caleb, as if he is perplexed about it all. I've been having sleepless nights of quiet dread. Wish I could make the feeling go away!
