Midnight’s peal rattles the silence
Toss and turn
Can’t fall back
Legs twitch
Arms flail
Where’s the Sandman?
Darkness envelops the night
Bogeymen step from the void
Dance around the bed
Laugh and point
Where’s the Sandman?
Their laughter louder
Heart racing
Cold sweats
Can’t take anymore
Where’s the Sandman?
He’s on the floor
The Bogeys snuffed him
Nightmares prevail
Sleep is no more

Insanity Plea

The moon is my friend,
and so is the storm.
The darkness is my light,
and it keeps me warm.
My tears are the laughter
I forgot to let out.
My nightmares composed
of the things that I love.
My daydreams are mirrors
of what never was.
My heart,
she cries for my sanity.
My lips,
they pray for clarity.
And I,
I can’t help but wonder,
was it the madness
that made me love you,
or did loving you
drove me to madness?
