Twilight Creeps

A Poem

Photo by Author Joanne Olivieri

My pillow turns hot and cold each night relaying visions every hour on the hour.

It argues in nonsensical dreams while I question it's motives, tossing and turning all night.

The twilight creeps slowly, methodically searching for prey like a spider hunting in the dark and my pillow the vessel.

The sunrise finally appears and rescues my mind with the soft glow of dawn.

And I awaken, tired yet grateful for another day.

Thank you for reading.
