My Tormentors of the Night

My Tormentors of the Night

A Poem by Maria
"

Due to Sexual, physical, verbal, mental, and Spiritual abuse, I have a hard time sleeping due to dreams that come about, in which I am living the horror, one way or the other, and at times, I go crazy

"
The dark comes about, as a thief.
Bringing about much terror 
and grief.
The moon shines bright, 
into the night, 
while the stars hover about.
The Prince of Darkness, lurks
behind trees, looking
into houses.
Satan is his name, and he
roams about,
seeking whom to devour.
His servants are those,
that fell from heaven above,
called Demons or Fallen Angels.
These go about, bringing 
back reports to him, of 
all those he seeks to DESTROY.
And so each night, as I 
ready myself to bed, I pray
to God, to keep them at bay.
I put on christian music,
and pray with my daughter
and lay in bed, awaiting,
for slumber to come
and help close my eyes.
Yet, deep within my 
heart starts racing,
in anticipation 
of what is to come.
Once asleep, my mind
is free, and then they come
and torment me.
For each dream, I have
tends to reflect abuse
in any form and shape.
And I struggle to open
up my eyes and leave
the terror behind.
Yet, they fight to keep me there,
and keep my mouth shut as well.
For if allowed, and I pray
out loud, they know what
will come about.
For the times, I manage to utter,
Jesus, a Light so bright
fills this space, and they
are forced to leave.
Not all nights are bad,
yet at times, they tend to
come more than once a week.
And take away my beauty sleep.
For you see, once I was set free,
they fought to stay about, but
God kicked them out of my life,
and they are hoping 
I lose faith, and or
give up, to come back, 
and be pals with me
once again.
Yet, this time, and all times,
I will no longer pay them
heed, nor let them
overcome my mind.
For in Him, I have 
overcome much,
and even though
I fear the night,
He has never left
my side.
And in those moments of
despair, He still 
is there.
My tormentors, mess with me
day in and day out.
And as I am weak, and imperfect,
I realize, that alone,
I could fall, back 
into that pit.
Yet, God will never Leave 
my side, and they cannot
change my heart, for He 
is my EVERYTHING.
My tormentors of the night,
will never stop coming,
but I will never give up
fighting in HIS name.
And will look forward
to that day, in which,
they can not HAUNT me
anymore.
For now, I battle each night,
and get little sleep,
yet, I know,
I am not alone.
Even if I fall
in fear, I will never
GIVE up.

Nightmares and sleep issues can be crippling. Being an insomniac I can relate to some of that It really does take hold. The intensity in this one boils Maria. Gripping work and keep it up!
