Cold and alone, I lay awake, listening to the silent night. Eyes pinch shut, afraid to see the faintest form of light. Tears fall from swollen eyes, carrying the pain of my heart. Sorrow runs deep into my soul, slowly ripping it apart. No voice left to call for help, no strength left to fight. Falling deeper into the dark, fearing I've lost all sight. As i start to drift off to sleep, I fear what the night will hold. Shivering beneath my own skin, I give into the cold.
