In my bed, 

legs sprawled across the head. 

I turn my face

to look up and see

my ceiling

staring down at me.

Slowly my eyes

my deep brown eyes

close their lids, 

and start to cry.

I cannot breathe

no, I cannot say

what has caused me to be this way.

i can not speak 

no, I cannot say 

why my words have failed me in such a way.

all I know

yes all I know

is I must flee

and escape this monster in me. 

But the funny thing is

that this monster in me

will not go

because it found a place to sleep. 

Deep in my thoughts

Deep in my sleep

It terrorizes the places that are weak. 

I cannot say, 

no I cannot say, 

why these clear tears

torture me this day. 

But I know they are here, 

perhaps to stay

and the only thing I know to fight

these clear, clear tears

is to pray

and hope

that someday

these clear, clear tears

will go away.
