I
Sleep
And
Remain
Tired

I sleep
To forget
All the
Awful things
They say

I hug the
Bear you gave
Me and I
Ashamedly let my
Tears rain down

Only weaklings cry says
Too proud inner voice
But does that voice
Know that I am
Too tired to care?

My dreams do not aid
Me in my search for
Peace tonight. And I fear
I will be awake till
Dawn, wandering my restless mind
Screaming ‘peace I cannot find’

This too skinny weakling
Has a proud mind
That does not care
That I still remain
Much, much too tired

I hug the
Bear you gave
Me and I
Ashamedly let my
Tears rain down

I sleep
And Hope
I forget
What they
Said tonight

I
Sleep
And
Remain
Exhausted

Hey, it's been a while...

I could really relate to this. Except usually I don't actually get the sleep...
Normally, I'd say it was lengthy, but I'd be totally wrong. Good, concise use of words.

There is power in the pen.

Like most of the things I write, it's a story, or a process of emotions, if you will.

Like, the longer something is able to bother you, the more drained, the more defeated you become.

Thanks, ya'll.
