Tears 'Till She Sleeps

burning heartache
sour tears
splashing against her pillow
a pounding head
uncontrollable breathing
piercing silence
no sound
no heartbeat
no anything
the blinding darkness
a sorrow soul
a broken human
visions of her past
words ring in her ears
bruises the shade of her broken heart
shame, fustration fill her mind
there's no self control
she's insane with fear
cries for help
slow breathing
red eyes
calming heartbeat
everything gets dark, darker, darker
till she finally goes to sleep
