And what has happened to me
Has happened to others
Even still. In the middle of the night
I wake and the pain drives me mad
Your not the only one. Your not the only one. I tell myself this because it seems like the ‘adult’ thing to do. Others go through moments of dispair, anguish, and rage. They make it through. They can hide it well. You should too, I tell myself. For a moment I believe myself. Than when the night comes, and I have not slept. Then I think to myself. There must be others who are awake with this pain. Awake with this anguish. Awake with this rage. Is it you?
