Daily Prompts – Sleep Demon

I rarely sleep anymore

My mind is too open

Merchandise for the sleep demon

Have you met him before?

He stilts my legs and won’t allow my eyes to close

Despite how hard I try

He swaths me in invisible concrete

I am stalked by him

Every night

He holds me hostage with my dreams, my nightmares

So, I choose to stay awake

An arduous undertaking

His end goal is simply speculation

But I’m sure

He gains pleasure watching me

Unable to squirm

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Speculation

3TC;

Sleep, Try, Open

FOWC;

Merchandise

RDP;

Swath

Word of the day challenge;

Stalk
