sleep

sleep
the nightly journey
peaceful and restoring
but sometimes turbulent
a troubled mind outpouring
to a body trapped in fear
a type of mental rape
until sheer horror forces
an awakening to escape

sleep
that necessary  
but double edged friend
which one unknown day
will not end
the force that
keeps us sane and well
become a journey to paradise
or maybe an enduring hell
