I lie here at night just listening to their screams,
hoping that all of this happens to be just a bad dream.
Their blood curdling laughter plays throughout the night,
causing me to shiver and hide beneath the covers with fright.
It has been happening now for more than two weeks,
and it just so happens that because of them…I cannot sleep.
Insomnia ridden with high anxiety and dark circles under my eyes
I feel like at some point I’ll just break down and cry.
But little did I know that it wasn’t just them with those screams.
It seems that at some point I also became part of this bad dream.
