Ambien Nights

You settle in under the sheets
Ahh, the comforts of sleep
The escape
The nothingness

You’re almost there
Halfway to dream land
White noise whirs
Night light dim

But then a disturbance
You stir slightly
Dismissing it as imagination
Until you begin to feel uneasy

You open one eye
Inspecting your surroundings
Discovering a flicker
You open the other eye

Awake again
Mildly annoyed
But then a noise
And you stare at the source

You feel it staring back
It feels familiar
Is if in a dream
Or is it a premonition

Has this happened before?
You ask yourself
Will it happen again?
Sudden darkness

Somehow you’re sucked
Into unknown depths
Until morning
When the promise of tonight looms
