Don’t bring the light

Don’t bring the light.
I hide between the sheets.
Cover me up, bury me deep, to
Never wake again.
I hang onto the night.
Let’s forget what daylight looks like,
Let’s forget the other side.
The world’s sheets and there I lie.
Don’t bring fright, for I deny
Anything that could strike,
That could pull me back to this mortal side.
Wrap me up in warmth, dig me a hole.
Maybe this could turn the tide.
A pillow’s fortress where I’ll be left sole.
I’m hiding deep inside.
Don’t bring the light.

  1. A pillow’s fortress – great line

  2. Busy week? You’re echoing my feelings exactly. I can’t remember the last time I hid under a blanket all day. This has inspired me.

  3. I know this feeling too. Great poem.

  4. Sorry, NBI.
    With poems like this, you’re bringing the light.
    Loved it!

    Love. It.

  6. This is great! Such a good flow to it. I know the feeling, like mooselicker said. I love to hide in a dark bedroom, curled up. No place better to escape the world.

  7. My thoughts exactly. And yet I am never left in peace 😦
