Sleepless Nights
Sleepless nights huddled
With blooded memories
Curl my fetal position
Fear rocked in my bed.

Dark vision adorned
by the winged flight
Of skeletal might-have-been's
Clutches at my moaning breath.

Restless sighs alone
Escape the midnight hour
Leaving behind the pestilence of my past
I rehearse over and over again,

As if, they could be changed, rearranged,
Molded and fleshed into cherub shaped
Wishes blessed into a miracle
Of well being.

I cannot wait for daylight
Reclaiming the promise
Of better things to come.
What stumble will hold me back?
