Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

Day is done

Nothing more

Weary eyes close

Eager for what dreams may come


Without warning

The landslide starts

Engulfing me

Senses dimmed


Memories wash over

The dam has broken

Unleashing the ghosts

Of those I failed


Unable to escape

Close my eyes

To no avail

Burned into my mind


Can’t breathe

Can’t think

Heart racing

Buried beneath the slide


Voice has left

Can’t scream

Need air

Need light

MAKE IT STOP


I see her eyes

Watch the fire

As helpless now

As then


Finally

The rain

Eyes pouring poison

Purging myself

Breaking free

From the inside

My mind

Exhausted

I sleep

Sweet dreams
