nyctophobia

must have been something I ate...

muscles knot pulsating pain
nerves shot heartbeats strain
beat out of sync
sodden body tremulant
overactive uvula intolerant
shuts off air
distended throat begins to shrink
exaggerate the breathing
supercharged intellect unraveling
in restless thought racing on
runaway psyche an unwieldy juggernaut
anxiety succumbs to anger
anger in profanity
surrenders to despair
despair to the futility of a desperate plea
o sweet mistress of somnolence
come cling to me
lay softly on my naked eyes
please no alibis
embrace me in the emptiness
of deep unyielding sleep
o fugitive angel of my phobic plight
where do you hide tonight?
