Waking up in the middle of the night

Sweating… screaming… crying

That became the norm

Fear builds from something I'm unfamiliar with

To the point of forgetting why I woke up in the first place

Journeying onto a path of no return, should I take that leap?

Should I plunge into the abyss with nothing to hold me back?

I keep my horrors as quiet as possible

But others can't help but notice something is different…something is strange about me

They try to ask… they try to reach out

And all I could do is wave them off… telling them that I'm fine… I'm okay

Don't worry about me… it'll pass

I try to say these words like I mean them… but if I don't believe these words, who will?

I wonder how long it will take before they grow tired of my moods that they won't even bother anymore

It's not something that worries me; being alone

In fact I prefer it that way

But I am terrified of losing you to my moods

I'm afraid of hurting you in ways unfathomable

So for your own well being and mine

I am going to let you go

I am going to end it this time
