Darkness - Poem by Angela Wybrow

Here in the darkness, I am caught;
My mind awash with unwanted thought.
Here in the darkness, I often lie;
Tears of sadness, I often cry.

This darkness, it surrounds me;
This darkness, it does hound me.
Many a night I lie awake,
Wondering how much more I can take.

The hours, they pass one by one,
As, around my head, dark thoughts run.
These thoughts I wish I could rid from my head,
And fill my mind with sweet dreams instead.

Surrounded by darkness, life feels bleak;
A good night’s sleep is what I seek.
In my mind, I recount events,
Trying to make them all make sense.

Problems at work, problems at home,
Seem worse in the dark when I am alone.
In a cloak of darkness, I am draped;
From the darkness, I cannot escape.

Feeling tired, I can’t help but yawn,
As I wish away the hours till morn.
I’m willing sleep to come my way,
So I can start afresh a brand new day.
