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


I see her eyes

Watch the fire

As helpless now

As then


The rain

Eyes pouring poison

Purging myself

Breaking free

From the inside

My mind


I sleep

Sweet dreams
