Sitting in the dark,
Time whispers past the ears.
Light fades from the vision,
Sink into the dreams, the nightmares.
Footsteps distancing, breathing quickens.
Silent screams, strangled cries.
The dreams are back. Love it was the air in these lungs,
that are now heaving.
Loveless thinking, loveless breathing, loveless living.
Clenched fists and closed eyes.
Tears sing down cheeks and hearts scream to the beat.
The body sags and the head weighs,
It’s time to stop crying,
stop feeling sad.
It’s time to smile and laugh,
Get out into the world after a full nights rest.
