A sorrowful poem about the pain of life and the constant unfairness of it all.

As I Lay Awake At Night

I lay awake at night,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I cry myself to sleep at night,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I yell in terror as I bolt awake,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I feel sick and scared,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I break down many of times,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I sit in silence,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I'm flooded with rivers of pain,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I mourn those I've lost alone,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I weep for my lost loved ones and mourn their passing,
While thoughts and images assail my mind.

I heal myself,
While thoughts and images assail my mind

It was very hard for me to write because it entailed looking into a part of my memories and a part of me that I have kept hidden for so long. I want to thank you for your comments they mean wonders for me.
