The Beast in Your Sleep

I watch you fall asleep;
So resistant,
Then you give in.

So peaceful,
As your eyes droop shut.

This peace is only temporary,
The beast lurks in the shadows.

Slithering through the crevices,
Living in your head.

Waiting, waiting, waiting,
And then…

Your body’s stiff,
You groan in pain.

Eyes fluttering,
As you try to get away.

Then,
It’s gone.

You’re back asleep.
~•~
My toes,
Hurt.

My heels,
Hurt.

My calves,
Ache.

My knees,
Buckle.

My hips,
Crack.

My back,
Is tight.

My shoulders,
Ache.

My neck,
Is stiff.

My head,
Is flooded
With emotions.

I,
Hurt.

I can’t imagine how you feel.
