I wake up drenched in sweat,
my knuckles bare white,
grasping the soaked sheets tight.
Rise straight up while gasping for air,
engulfed by the dark,
My chest rising with my fast beating heart,
what the hell just happened?
am I home, am I OK?
The moonlight gleams into the room,
I recognize things around me soon.
I am OK, I am in bed.
Another lost memory buries deep in my head.
See you tomorrow terror of the night,
I’ll remember this time,
I’ll conquer you.
I will not give up the fight.
No more sweat beads on my hair,
no more waking with feelings of despair.
This time I will not wake and feel so grim.
This time terror of the night I will win.
