The Night...



Am I sleeping?
Or still awake?
What time of night is this?

A heavy load
Is on my chest
I gasp, I breathe heavy

The darkness
and the distant light
Is this but a dream?

The silence outside
Grave within
Should I sprint or scream?

My legs are firmly
On the ground
Yet the floor I do not feel

Something's coming
From behind
I am scared to turn around

I want to reach
The light In front
I can barely move my feet

Cold and numb
In quandary now
Should I wake or go to sleep?
