Savior

Savior

Strength, where

did you go?

I needed your

embrace today

 

My invisible

cloak, protecting

my dignity

Saving grace

 

Don’t go away

hide in an

unknown

treasure chest

 

I lose my way

easily, you’re a

guide from land

to sea

 

Strength, I need

you more than you

need me, but please

stay

 

If not

darkness

covers. can’t float

in over my head

 

Iron weights

on my chest

Can’t breathe

Can’t move

 

Can’ts. don’ts

scream in my

mind

I lose

 

Paralyzed

drowning

in tears, living

all my fears

 

 

Insomnia binds

Its fingers pry open

my eyes, nightmares

take control

 

Strength, I need you

to keep me safe

and make the monsters

go away

  1. Thanks for following.

    I enjoyed this. And seeing as it’s 5am where I am and I have been unable to sleep. The insomnia lines really are relatable.
    Great free verse and rhythm.

      1. Thanks. I am kind of used to it now tho. Manage to make it through on the odd hour here and there. Glad you find it interesting although it can be a little too honest for some. :/ look forward to reading through your work.

      2. Oh no that’s horrible. I think I’d rather the insomnia. Nightmares are terrible. How often do you get them and does it scare you to go to sleep?

      3. It used to scare me more because there was a week I had them every night. The nightmares are caused by a trauma I experienced. The more I heal the less often I get them. I had one last week. It’s usually about once a month?
