Ripped apart barely hanging on
I don not want to wake at dawn
For all my fears come rushing back
Alone-falling through the crack
Eyes shut tight clawing my way through

Tears streaming down my face like dew
Terrified my feelings true
The numbness gone pain seeping through
Ripped apart

Lips sealed with a kiss of silence
The war raging inside me-violence
Hopeless-unsure if this is real
Hoping in the end I won’t feel
Patiently waiting for the end
Ripped Apart
