The Dark War

Sleep comes hard; it is too much like giving up.  Giving up Today and giving in to Tomorrow. 

Tomorrow taunts me – my Goliath. 
His words bring dread and fear crawling through my body. 
So I fight each night knowing I will lose in the end.

I am weary from this nightly defeat, yet I refuse to give in without a struggle. 

The one thing that keeps me going
    is in knowing
that soon Tomorrow becomes Today.

Today is easy!

  1. Clever ending to the poem…very nice indeed.

  2. More! If it can even be considered a criticism, I’d like to hear you do a longer version of this. You have a way of putting words in the right order.

    • Thank you Ian. I will have to sit on that one for a while until the “mood hits”. Otherwise, I will force it and it just won’t feel right. I do have a beginning of an itch though!
