Shadows

Wide awake
Cold and in the dark
The shadows overtake me.
i can’t sleep, can’t set my mind to rest.
Because the shadows…
They cover, obliterate and obfuscate.
i am overcome by them, unable to escape.
Defeated in a fight i never wanted any part of, by an opponent i never wanted to face.
Bewildered, i blink away the tears and wish for sleep to come, but it’s an elusive beast.
Because the shadows…
Envelop, devour and nullify.
Because You let them.
