What is Rest But the Truth Set Free

What is Rest But the Truth Set Free

A Poem by Thanatos96

I don’t want to dream

I’m afraid to sleep

I’m afraid of what the quiet can bring

When you’re alone --

Truly alone

With your thoughts

And your demons

Sleep is not for the weak

It’s for the brave

Because in our dreams

In that in-eternal slumber

Where waking is a blessing

And the nightmares are hell…


Hell is not a place after death

It’s the in-betweens

Between fending off the would-be invaders

And wishing they never existed

It’s the place you go when you rest

And you think you’re safe


Until they come back

Until you’ve realized

The pain in your life can torment you

In wakefulness

Or in respite
