Alone in the night
A breath so sharp
It cuts through every page

A sorrow so bright
It swallows every word
Worth giving light

Away from these thoughts
A part of this is
Born of my self-hate

Away from the day
Finding room to hide
In so much space

I can’t feel anymore would someone
Tell me this is going to end
I don’t have a better plan
Other than moving forward
Running never makes amends

When the dark enfolds
A hand on half the world
Let the shadows rise
A body broken by its mind

I can’t sleep tonight
In my grief I rejoice
Sadness bears greater joy

If my body breaks
These thoughts like fallen leaves
Heavy limbs hang low
The weight of sorrow you have known

Can you hear me?
My heart is underground
Can you lay low?
Rise underneath before you drown...
