Crying in the corner
Forced to be still and quiet
Yet the tears keep coming
Like a river flowing down my cheeks

I didn’t even do anything this time
Did I even deserve to be put here?
Just because I didn’t want to be stabbed by a needle
I saw it coming and just panicked

She was quiet until the moment we came home
Then, she unleashed her anger at me
She said she didn’t know what to do with me anymore
She scared me more than the needle

Now he comes in and tells me that its time for bed
I rush to his arms, the river still flowing
He tells me that it’s okay
I wish that I could believe him

I jump on to the bed and lie down
Could crying make you this tired?
The sheets and blankets make me feel safe
If only I could stay here forever

The door opens, just enough to let in a stream of light
I quickly close my eyes
I can feel her looking at me, thinking I’m asleep
Then, she sits down on the bed and apologizes anyway

It takes her a while to end with an, “I love you”
Once she does, she leans down and places a kiss on my cheek
Only then do I realize that she was crying

The kiss is laid out on my cheek
I knew what I was going to do with it
Intending to wipe it off, I place a hand over it
Only to find myself push it even deeper into my skin
