Night, awake, and alone

Stuck, on this spot

Cannot move, cannot think

Cannot speak

It's all a blur

Around me

Music's loud

people laugh

Did I hear a scream?

Something crawling on my skin

I lie in my bed

Unable to function

Totally inept

from my own emotions

Nothing to do but wait

Waiting takes too long

It hurts me

Burns me, bruises, bloodies me

The crippling inaction

That stems from this

Seemingly unbreakable fear

Fear from the endless

shadows of the night.

Shaking like a dry leaf in the wind

Not knowing where it will take me

Mind playing tricks 

I know

The end feels near

The adventures

of a new day

A new light, new hope

The sun is breaking through

the tinted glass of my window.

A smile crosses my face

I made it to another day

Free from the chains of the dark

Until we meet again.
