In the Dark

The teardrops fall in a never ending stream
My insides twist and turn
As all of this emotion tears me apart
Curled up in a ball in the corner
I try and hold myself together
I rock back and forth, back and forth
My body jolting and jerking with sobs
I’ve fallen into this bottomless pit
I’m all alone, falling
Any trace of happiness has been ripped away from me
I try to get myself under control
But the tears just keep pouring down my face
And my sobs refuse to quiet down
All I can do is sit here and wait
Wait and see if I can stop the salty tears
Wait and see if I can calm myself down
I just want to run away from the world
But I know that tomorrow I will have to face it
And I know the stream of tears will never stop
