Nobody knows

Nobody knows how she cries herself to sleep,

Almost every night,

Feeling so lost, so alone.

During the days, she wears her mask,

Seemingly fine,

Someone who is doing well.

But when night falls,

She is on her own,

Letting her mask fall.

Then, the heavy fog, the darkness,

Is sinking in bit by bit,

Dragging her down into a bottomless abyss.

She is tired of fighting,

Her strength isn’t enough,

To fend off the demons,

As they tear at her flesh, her heart, her soul.

Memories, hopes, dreams, wishes, needs,

Ripping her apart bit by bit.

She dreams of protective arms,

Of warmth and safety,

Being cherished and desired,

But her only companion is the growing darkness.

With silent screams and salty cheeks,

She feels chained,

Unable to move,

Weighted down,

As she is slowly drowning.
