please call again

Eyes strain against the light,
My palms covering them,
Offer little comfort,
Raw red stinging torture,
No release from their plight.

Sleep attacks with brute force,
I sluggishly fend off,
Looming grasping darkness,
Attached to fleeting thoughts,
I cannot stay this coarse.

The onslaught is too great,
My mind is overthrown,
Drifting downward deeper,
Awareness has left me,
Giving in to my fate.

Perhaps my dreams will soothe my ache…

Perhaps you should return when I wake…
