Darkness is not My Friend

Darkness is not My Friend —– by Teresa Dean Smeigh

Nightmares during the night or day,

Cannot keep the demons at bay.

I always dread the coming night

I have to sleep with a light.

Darkness is not my friend

I wish it all were to end!

This poem came to me upon waking up. Sometimes they are just there and have to come out.

    I hope the light helps to counteract the effects of darkness. Not a friend at all 😦

      The light helped and the increased meds have calmed them down a lot. Thank heavens. Waiting on a new med change, but my insurance company doesn’t want to pay for it.
