All I want to do is quit
Just stop thinking and wondering
To curl up in your arms
Forget the world and relax like before.
Mind racing I wonder what changed
You used to be my comfort from the world
Now another weight on my mind.
You sit there within arms reach
Yet you feel miles away
I could reach out and touch you
I dare not fearing you’ll turn away.
Glancing over I rise up and walk away
Eyes brimming with tears held back
The façade has cracked and I flee.
Sitting alone the tears stream silently
Quietly falling apart piece by piece
Footsteps pass my door without pause
I wonder if you notice at all.
I close my eyes praying for sleep to claim me
Knowing I will wake to face another day
Wondering if it will be the day I break.
