My Enemy

my sweet slumber

where silk petal sheets
and peaceful promises
once played blissful lullaby's

now ceases her
silent serenity
and relinquishes her place
of powerful escape

my desired freedom

where once
a parallel universe
spun no sorrow

is now replaced with
despair packed pillows
of a swallowed past

they slither in
like Eve's serpent
and prosper off my fears

no force strong enough
to fight my lids from closing
like cell doors

they hold me prisoner
of my memories
and leave me with out choice
but to wave my white flag

I surrender
