Now I Lay Me…

Now I Lay Me…

I stand in the shadows, and
stare at my bed

That place has seen so much pain
I can’t even count the nights I’ve lain
In it, begging for mercy, begging
For reprieve
Because I believed it would worth it
When it came

But every night’s been
Exactly the same

I can’t count the tears it’s seen
The number of times it’s been stained
With salt
With blood
More streaks, but darker, with anger
With emptiness, with ache
I’m almost surprised it didn’t break yet,
Considering how much I’ve shook in it
But see
That bed is damnedly more strong than me
Because I drowned it, every night I drowned
I tore myself apart in it- and it still gives
Silent witness
To everything
That I’ve lived
It’s heard all that I was too afraid
To say, except in my head
On these nights, when I stand in shadow
I’m not sure if I’m scared, or eager
To confide in, to hide in,
My bed

    What goes to bed is your secret — your story. I hope you are okay, Cookie. I am always here if you need to talk (I mean it — always).

    Much love,
