A fight within

A fight within

A Poem by SarahCortland
"

Nightmares again

"
I'm afraid to close my eyes I don't wanna see I'm so afraid to know The darkness surounds me My heart beats quickly My breathing off beat My mind racing Calming down, an impossible feat My blood is boiling My body is aching My anger is rising My hands are shaking No words can describe Nothing can compare I lay awake Or I wake up there Pills are no help They merely trap me It's a fight to stay awake It's my only chance to be free This fight cannot be done  no one can win Though the anxiety will stay For it is a fight within

I'm sorry about your nightmares. I can't remember the last time I had a dream. I think I daydream soooo much during the day for my stories that when I go to sleep my brain is like...
"He finally fell asleep! I think I'll take a nap."
lol
Anyway, really good portrayal of the fear you experience for your night terrors.
I used to have panic attacks a lot so I can relate sort of.
Nice job

Very interesting i like how you've switched to prose in this. Interesting how you capitolized some words and not others, you capitolized Or and Pill. Or is an intersting word to emphasize. Overall i really like this one. kudos!

Nightmares I think are the best way to show our emotions. They pick at us until we show it and then suddenly and abruptly we ake from them. They are a way a fears can manifest and genuinly make us afraid to sleep again. This is a great portrayal of this and I love how you share your experience with u very vividly.

Great job.

Great write. Nightmares are never fun, try fighting back in your dreams.

I felt very tense reading this, and you can feel the sheer panic of the poem in the second and third stanzas. I like how you wrote this without your useual pattern (not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just good to explore more :).

This poem brings to mind a saying "The en-emy is the inner you".
You let us all know how it feels. Gripping write here.

Wow. I use to have nightmares like that when I took chemical balancers. Took two months after I got off them to stop the cycle of nightmares. Every now and again tho I have them. This poem is so real to those who have been through it. Thank you.

Oh my. This is my life right here. I take sleep medication because of insomnia, and I experience this every night. The nightmares. And then the pills don't let me wake up. I feel your fear, I understand. Thank you for writing this poem, it really inspires me. You remind me of myself :) I'm jealous of this poem.
