Beauty in the Night

In the belly of the beast
I have lost consciousness
For the monster resides
In the passages of my mind
My own worst enemy
The thoughts
That will not relent
A barrage of darkness
‘What if’ worst case scenarios
Fear inducing nightmares
I no longer see the landmark of hope
My shining north star
Anxiety shut my eyes tight
Hands fisted over my ears
But the sliver of light still fights
To slice into the gloom
Give me one spark to grasp
Ignite endless possibility
And choose the dream over plight
See beauty in the night
