Somniphobia, poetry by G. Lynn Brown at
Ron Lach



written by: G. Lynn Brown



It’s the heart of midnight
Toss and turn
Can’t fall back
Legs twitch
Arms flail
Where’s the Sandman?
Darkness envelops the night
Bogeymen step from the void
Dance around the bed
Laugh and point
Where’s the Sandman?
Their laughter louder
Heart racing
Cold sweats
Can’t take anymore
Where’s the Sandman?
He’s on the floor
The Bogeys snuffed him
Nightmares prevail
Sleep is no more
