Operation 365 Poem: day 179…The Edge

The Edge

That vision
Bouncing in my mind
The fall
That sound
Being one step behind
I wake
And gasp
As I see it replay and replay
I doze
It won’t stop
Haunting as night turns to day
Just bringing him
To bed
Sets my nerves on fire
I’ll try anything
At this point
To encourage him to tire
Too much
I can’t
I keep thinking I’m over it
But his tossing
And turning
Makes my heart have a fit
Too little
To learn
And I can’t let him roam free
My bed
Off limits
Even if it helps him get sleepy
Truth is – I can’t trust me
