A storm behind my eyelids

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
