Let the nightmare go

Can’t sleep
Can’t be awake
Nightmares are night and day
Daytime comes
Reality hits me
In my chest
Punches me in the throat
Can’t breath
Can’t scream
Tears are silent
Had to go home
Lie down and sleep
Dreams punch my mind
Teaching me a lesson
Waking up each hour
Each breath taken away by the nightmare
The monster
Who keeps me chained
In the inferno
Of my own regret
