Night Frights

Dish water film screen rolls over the eyes Holding ones breath til the pain subsides Sensory processing put to the test. Praying for sleep or at least for some rest. A sharp pain forged from a fire deep inside Throbbing and stabbing on nerve ends it rides. Feel sick to the stomach, can't catch a breath Skin feels on fire, yet it's soaked with sweat. Hail Mary, our father pray for relief Wait for the light of the morning to peep. Somehow there's hope in the light of the day Removed from the realm where night terrors play.

Thank you so much. This is a rather dark piece and I was not sure how it would be accepted.
