Some Questions

What frightens you,

when you lie awake at night

unable to sleep

watching the shadows

as they creep

closer to your bed?


What keeps you awake

when worried thoughts curl

and weave their way

through your mind

ruffling feathers

and flying blind?


What stops you from falling

back to peaceful sleep

when the nightmares of the day

stop haunting your nights

and gather to wrestle

sleep from your eyes?


Who is it you see

when you look in the mirror

and the mask slips away…

Do you rejoice,

or do you sigh back

into your camouflage?

    When I look in the mirror, I see mixed flavours of my character. Some I am proud of and others I have to work on.
