Literary Yard

Search for meaning

By: Amanda Weir-Gertzog

awake again
circa 4am
sweat rivulets
glisten my skin

slick to the touch
breathing rushed
a postmenopausal
painted blush

aura cherry red
flashbang my head
knocking sleep’s door
onto nightmares bed

rest often remains
a memory, estranged
my brain unchained
