Night - Poem by Johnny Golding

Every night
as my head
hits the pillow,
And sleep engulfes
my waking fears,
They come to me,
In a silent roar.

They mock
my every
My every
In their fits
of silent laughter.

I try
to run,
To flee,
But everywhere
I go, Them,
on my

And when,
With relief
I wake,
I know
They're not gone,

    Theres a lot of frustration in your work. Don't forget when you are writing verse that others are going to read it and you need to abide by the rules of poetry. Beware of letting an emotional moment break your rhyme and the flow of your words.
    When it becomes hard to read for others, it is considered an ameteur piece of work.
    You are talented to watch that rhyme. Just some constructive advise.
    Well done.
