Untitled Poem #2

***I wrote this after having a nightmare.***
Shadowy beings
sidle down the wall
scritching
scratching
drawing near.
Slipping beneath the blankets
pillow over my head
trying to escape the nightmare
that you have left.
Whispers
insinuations
susurrations
hands clapped over my ears
go away
leave me alone
get away from here.
Trembling
fearing
tears fall free
memories watched through a gauzy film.
Silent screams
ricochet through my brain
unexpressed
like this pain.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
