Tears in the dark
Laying at night in the comfort of the bed, tears are free to flow.
The sorrows of the day swelling in the heart, not knowing where else to go.
The pain is so great, no one knows but you.
Hidden in the light to protect the few.
Burying it deep to guard the young in mind.
It sours the stomach, robs the victim of time.
Endless pain it seems,
‘Never to end’ the spirit screams.
Why does it have to be this way, all the needless pain.
Pray for sleep, rest from the strain.
Awake in the morning, to start a fresh new day.
But same old crap presented in a new, yet ol’familiar way.
The sorrows of life swelling in the heart,
not knowing where else to go, except to escape into the dark.
