Life’mares

Cold sweats, he shooked

in and out of death,

silently whispering confession

of dark nightmares

hated

for years later

till death,

pointed a gun

in tears

to his left

lobe

erasing all fears

he let go

to leave

out of

misery…,

To

hunting me

again

he hasn’t left…

breathing the same whispers

at night,

tugging my pillow from

left to right,

hugging sheets

of repeated

whispers

hunted

sleepless

to praying

“My God Please…, take

this

PTSD away from

Me!”

Up to Sleep

Goodnight Midnight

kiss my dreams

awake

tonight.

Brightly eyed

covering a

gravitational

pulling

levitating

slowly as

my star

glows

dim

to shine

amongst a

fleet of

starship troopers

warped into

my

frontal lobes

speeding

pressures

to press

overdrive.

Nope!

My own

airlifting

at my speed.

Stretching to

push through

the exigency

of Newton’s law…

floating astronauts

finds

nobody

without an oxygen

suit.

Breathe…

releasing out

toxicity

Gas

deflating

the body

to be

situated

back to

bed

resting

easy

with a

straightforward

Head

under

the pillow.

Sleep Walking

Closing eyes

in

nightmares

screams

interrupting

daily living

revisting

Traumatic Visions

AHHHH!!!

Hunted

dusk

to

morning

already

up

before

the

clock alarm.

Left, right,

and in

circles

distracted

wide-eyed

twisted

to

evil circulates

and

haters

bait

blood shed

lurking

around.

Night guard

protects

clench teeth

grinding

intrusive thoughts

beneath

a Tencel mattress

collecting

a sad

Scrambled

brain

for

breakfast.

Sunrise

to

reality

day by day

routines

essentially

for survival

stepping

Restless.
