with heavy eyelids
you tell me of what on your mind
and never do i

then with closed eyes
you blame me
for what I am fearful of
and your frustration is overwhelming

and with teary eyes I take it
as my cheeks turn purple
and my fingers go numb

then with red eyes I lash back
and the tongue you long for
spits fighting words

then with swollen eyes I awake
and am ashamed
that id let myself imagine
such horrible dreams
