Day 23 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly
Write about the intricate relationship between pain and sleep.
My Companion, My Curse.
I can only think of you.
You fill me with fear and sadness.
Why must you torment me so?
I followed your rules..
I obeyed your restrictions...
Yet you will not forgive my weakness.
Your claws scrape along my bones, making my muscles scream.
Yet I must remain silent.
I drift into unconsciousness,
but you drag me back, kicking and wriggling into the silence of night.
My mind begs for rest, as you poke and stab at my insides.
I need to sleep to hide from your assault.
Yet you despise the relief it would allow me.
So I will not sleep tonight...
My mind will not be still....
I will create instead.
