I CAN’T DREAM ANYMORE

My bed sheets,

A new skin to pull off and

Tuck in under


Covers, to uncover my deepest

Dreams, that never make it

Past the swamping nightmares

You wilfully stand above me.



You give standing over

With your weapon

To silence what could be beauty.

You wilfully stand above me.



Betwixt my beaten body

And my mind

Your murmurs manipulate me.

You wilfully stand above me.



When floating in a place

I can’t run

From you


If I could

I would

But


You have encroached me,

Everything,

All of me.

You wilfully stand above me.



And now I will

Not sleep.

I will wait.


Until, my eyes become heavy,

And I dream, inevitably.

You wilfully stand above me.
