Why can't you knock on my door?
When you hear me crying
In incredible pain
The way I suck in air
Trying desperately to find my breath
That's when I hear your footsteps
Walking nonchalantly by my door
Are you afraid to open it?
See what's inside
The agonizing look on my face
As I try to beast this
The gasping between screams
Thrashing my body against the bed
My head buried in a sea of pillows
Mascara stained cheeks
That you choose to ignore
But only when I quiet down
And there isn't anymore screams or cries
Do you knock on my door
"Honey are you okay?"
The door meets your face
And the screams come alive again.
