Poem -

I was never enough

I was never enough

In a wave of torturous thoughts and a dark sheet over my face
the demons came to get me,
you were my night light.

They clawed at my feet and pulled on my legs
I turned you on,your light scared them away.

Tossing and turning
sweating and crying
I woke up in a terror to look over and see my night light.
I was fine, goodnight.

A new room 
A different place
I fall asleep with no sight of my light
they got me
I'm tossing 
I'm turning 
I'm sweating 
I'm crying
I cant wake up, I wont wake up.
The light is gone.

I wasn't enough to scare the demons away

I was never enough.
