Recuperation’s Snare

Harshly awakened by agony’s barbed stab
She searches for acquittal
Inaudible sobs convulse her reconstructed frame
A voiceless witness to jagged pain
Her anguish cloaked in darkness
Obscurely illuminated by moon’s soft ray
Terrorizing thoughts freely roam
Moist droplets soak colored cloth
Writhing. Squirming.
Entangled. Captive.
Turmoil her nightly companion
Serenity, Serenity enters the room
Night’s power decays
Restful slumber returns
