In a forest of sheets,
Tangled up and twisted,
I fight sleep,
Pillows drenched in a mixture of sweat and tears,
Mattress covered in a concoction of heat and release, Moments tick by,
As I fall asleep,
I have the ghost of you.
She’s by your side.

About the Author
From a very young age, Elizabeth knew she was meant to be a writer. Around 8 or so, she started with little poems inside birthday cards. As years went by, poetry became her safe haven in a world full of chaos and beauty. Through written words, she found her voice. A voice according to doctors, she was never supposed to have. Today at 34, she still re- reads those poems from the early days. Now housed on her bookshelf in old binders.
