She couldn’t sleep
The wetness of her cheeks
Kept her awake even as she watched
The comforting loneliness of the dark
Fade away to the cruel spotlight of the day
Her tears dripped from her chin
She sniffed silently, sobbed softly
She heard sounds of broken glass
Move inside her, up and down.
Piercing with every whimpering breath.
The tears would never stop
Nobody understood why she cried
When she was to blame for their hurt
And yet, the tears kept falling quietly,
Comforting her in her loneliness.
