Image for the poem Nocnitsa


I hear her walking  
No longer stalking  
My visitation  
Is scheduled  
Since childhood  
This torture
Her screeching  
Rings in my ears  
Songs of past  
She does not knock  
Comes right in  
Shall I leave cookies?  
I try to fade  
While I hide  
In darkness  
Pills replace sleep  
She takes a seat  
On my chest  
To watch the  
Hypnagogic cinema  
And torment  
I play dead  
With every drift  
She taps my shoulder  
No sleep  
My energy wanes  
But I must  
Watch the show  
With her  
My old f(r)iend  
She asks  
For the popcorn

Author's Note
Another sleepless night, more writing about it. Nocnitsa is a nightmare spirit in Slavic mythology. The night hag who sits on your chest and drains energy at night causing nightmares.
All writing remains the property of the author. Don't use it for any purpose without their permission.
