    sobbing keeps me up at night
    and so many demons that
    visited my days
    come back to taunt
    stir up old fears

    moaning interrupts my sleep
    and things that go bump
    in the night now
    outline my eyes
    in deep circles

    I hold on to what once was hope
    squeezing it so tightly
    crushing the life out
    in the darkness
    in the moonlight

    waiting for my tears
    to dry
