I am full of nightmares

I am full of nightmares, now that my energies are not tapped;
not ironed with regular employ.
I am full of nightmares and aching and burning.
People scream on either side of me.
The days grow longer now —
I no longer dread Night’s onset
but she falls more softly,
quite outside of my notice, now.
I am afraid of the dark when I am alone
for the absence
