Long Awaited Tears





My head aches.
There are lines on the mirror,
lines on my face.
I've tried all there is but this pain won't leave!
And I think it'd be nice if life would kill me.
But as I reach for that answer,
you appear again.
My lifelong friend.
And you pull me in and comfort me,
and tell me not to worry.
And as you carry me to my bed,
the dreams in my head
Surround me in hopes of surrender.
But as you treat my love so tender,
The tears fall from my eyes.
And I cry.
