Insomnia.I lay there in the dark,
staring at the ceiling.
My mind is quiet,
but I know what awaits.
When I close my eyes,
it's like a sudden ambush.
Memories flood my head,
and there's no easy escape.
My eyes shoot open,
all is silent.
Another restless night,
another night without sleep.
All The Hurt.Darkness crept in,
engulfing the light that surrounded her.
His words tore through her,
searing through her mind.
Everything he said was doing more harm than she could possibly do to herself,
but it wasn't those scars that were visible.
Anything good he had ever said become meaningless in an instant.
Staring at herself in the mirror,
the reflection she saw was distorted by words.
The words of people she had tried to forget.
Now his words made her feel worthless and alone.
Tears falling from her pretty green eyes blurred her vision.
As they fell from her cheeks, they stung the cuts and drew blood down her arm.
She had never hurt as much as she did in this moment.
His words were a broken record in her head.
She thought of the days to come, as now, she would be facing them alone...
