Restless Nights - Poem by C.R. Ebowski

She lays in her king sized bed
Clutching the covers over her head
Holding them tight around her face
Next to the pillow made of lace

Her mind wanders from now to then
Reliving moments of what could have been
Punishing herself for every mistake
Knowing the outcomes were not hers to make

So there she lies awake starring at the clock
Listening to the numbness of the tick-tock
In an hour the night will be drowned by the day
Or so it says on the alarm clock display

The day will start again, just like it did before
Unconditional forgiveness, she will promise once more
Knowing that everything will stay the same
At night her mind will fill with doubts and self blame
