In the night

The night, 

Still. 

I lie awake, 

Breathing next to me, 

Sleep, 

Elusive creature, 

Frustrates me at each turn, 

Pain, 

Body wracked by pain, 

I writhe and twist, 

I turn, 

Unable to find, 

Comfort. 

Dark dreams haunt my waking visions, 

Nightmares haunt my fractured snippets of sleep, 

Awake or Asleep,

Which is better ?. 

Time, 

The passage of time, 

Slowed, 

Creeping, 

Under my watchful eye, 

It seems to go, 

Backwards, 

Tormenting me, 

Cursing me, 

Condemning me, 

Laughing, 

At my pain, 

Driving me out, 

Like a demon, 

To chase more demons, 

In my mind.
