A canopy of tears
streaming down my
cheeks
lost
gone
passed away
excuses for the dreaded word
my make up smears
melting what’s left of
the sham
hiding
the pain that seems so endless
this dark tunnel
leading me nowhere
losing myself along the way

Silent tears
turn to sobs
I’m not weak
just shattered
into splinters
they cover my bed room floor
suddenly it’s not
one thing I’m weeping for
it’s for everything that I’ve
been holding back
no one understands
how I feel
the humiliation
the grief
the sorrow
sucking me in
I want to hide
but where ever I go
pain seems to fallow
my heart once new and alive
now covered in
barbwire
with every beat comes pain

I try to restrain what needs
to come out
but I crumble
all over again

I’m in the middle of this
dark tunnel
Will I ever escape?
