The nightmares come to me every night. I am always falling through the water, insecurity, and fear nipping at my heels. I can never escape my dreams; nothing can I save me from them. The fear and the dark waters always swallow me up to the end. I wake up tangled in sheets with tears streaming down my checks and sweat covering me. Most of my nights are spent awake, wishing for rest. I fight the dreams to no avail. There is no one to save me.
I cannot expect anyone else to save me when I cannot save myself.
