Those dreams, the ones that haunt your sleep
bring your soul back down to earth
leave you breathless
make you weep.
Those thoughts, the ones that break your heart
lead you to fear everything you are
summon the quiet despair
tear you apart.
Those words, the ones that shatter your skin
destroy everything you have
leave you wanting
afraid to begin.
Those days, the ones that darken the sun
crush your hopes and dreams
leave you broken
lost and undone.
