Silence is needed as I prepare for sleep
Let me not be reminded of the happiness that has been lost
Let me not be reminded of the way it used to feel when you loved me
Let me not cry one more night as I think of the innocent touches that stole my heart
I can’t silence the mind, do I take another drink?
As the poison trickles down my throat I pray for peace to sleep
I have to make it through another night
I have to work and provide for my son
But my heart hurts because my brain is not functioning on its own
My brain has reasoned with reality, but my heart believes in the fairy tale
But some fairly tales come true!!
