The wind wrapping around throat I can barely breathe

Staying up past twilight my painful thoughts consuming me

.

Now I remember why I went to bed early..

So I won't be up alone, my thoughts eating me up inside

Reminding me I'm on my own.

.

Watching the sky changing while everyone is sleeping

Wrapped in the sheets of their bed.

I'm fighting the shadows consuming me in my head.

.

Whispering of the lost and whispers of the pain

Everyone calmly sleeping safe in bed

I'm going slowly insane

.

The noises in the dark

The extra shadows that aren't there

I'm scared and alone crying in despair

.

The shadows are my nightmares

Whispering my pains and regrets

Telling of all my failures so I cant ever forget

.

Now I remember why I went to bed early..

To escape the shadows creeping in

I'm caught awake past midnight

Now they finally win.
