Battles of the NightHer eyes are dark and full of pain,
She hides behind her smile.
Beneath those eyes the shadows lie;
They speak of restless nights.
Each night she sleeps a few short hours,
But never all at once.
Throughout the night she is awake;
She fights with her own mind.
She wars with memories of the ones
Who filled her with such fear.
She cannot banish thoughts of them,
However hard she tries.
And so she takes a different way
To keep away the fear.
Each day she works despite the pain,
Allows herself no rest.
Her body cannot take much more,
She knows it will collapse.
But that's the only way she's found
To overpower her mind.
She runs herself beyond her limits;
She works herself to death.
But when she finally stops to rest,
Exhaustion is her friend.
For she has learned the secret now
To overcome her thoughts.
Her body's need to recover strength
Must far outweigh her fear.
But she cannot let herself relax,
Unless she is secure.
Precautions she must take each night,
Before she can drift off.
