I enjoy the company of nights.
But then the nightmares begin.
I , well love nights. I love the quiet solitude that night brings with itself. I can’t say I love the darkness , but well it comes covered in the blanket of stars and so I welcome it. It comes disguised as stars itself. I enjoy this silence but then the nightmares begin. Like every good thing this night comes to end for me with the beginning of this nightmare.
What is this nightmare , I don’t know. It is just shadows , dark and ugly that bonds me and holds me hostage. I go numb , not being able to move , not being able to scream. It’s just my mind that wanders and tears wet my pillow. A fear engulfs me , fear of what? It’s everything – life , death , love or the lack of it. And I stay still in that position , in a state of numbness till the first rays of sun emerge from the horizon.
This nightmare unclenches it’s fist around me. I let out a sigh and feel myself breathing again. I swallow the lump in my throat and everything gets back to normal. Another day has begun and I am ready for it.
