Word prompt: Sleep
Many nights I laid there
Breathing in the air
Will this be the night?
Will I get to sleep alright?
Or will I toss and turn?
How many calories will that burn?
Will I dream of a happy place?
Or will I wake with tears on my face?
The pain and fear felt too real
Will my heart ever heal?
Nowadays I sleep well
The nightmares have begun to quell
Although some nights I feel the threat
My dreams won’t let me forget
