Sleep Tight

frustration, fear anger, anger fear

Depression, fear, fear depression
Fear Pain, Pain, fear
Fear the tear that brought me here
Anger fear, fear anger

FIX IT! PATCH IT! MEND IT QUICK!

Fear anger, an erratic emotion
Fear the way the words are spoken
Fear every morning, fear every day
Fear the way an egg is broken
Fear the way i am each day
Fear the words i am able to say

Words said then are heard, Causing emotion express

Anger, fear, fear anger

I wished words were withdrawn, too much commotion

Withdraw pull back slide into the dark,

BE still, bE quiet, it will pass

Find safety only in ones abyss

Another quiet tear, falls from my face

my throat tight, constricting, unable to express.
Tongue limp, cant swallow, no saliva, Tears.

Quiet! Breath, breath quiet

Breath slow, ‘til the tears cannot flow

Stop Sleep, sleep, breath
Anger, fear, Fear anger
Fear showing others’ expression of doubt
Expression obsolete, long disabled
Withdraw, pull back slide into the dark
Safety only within ones abyss
That is one place I do not miss

These are only a few words that could not b spoken, the rest will remain that way
