1 Screams in the night, Sleeping all day. Yelps of pain, And cries of anger.
****** torture, Mind disruption, Soul disappearance
Tears in the light Screams in the night.
2 Terror through and through, Scared thoughts of pain. Living in sadness, Then despair,
Life drained. Dark appears. Nothing left.
All taken and blue, Terror through and through.
I wrote these separately, but feel now that they belong together. I spent a lot of my teen years caring for my mentally and physically ill mother. I remember being afraid to sleep because I'd get woken by her screaming in pain or mentally ill fears.
