Dont Leave Me In The Dark - Poem by Hannah Hebditch

I always used to wonder
Why someone turns out the lights
And all of a sudden, fast beating
Erupts from inside, like a drum under your heart
You’re pasted on smile dims to a frown
You close your eyes, praying to just fall asleep
Why doesn’t anyone want to stay awake,
Alive when the world cries?

“Why won’t you answer me? ”
When I tell you I can feel a heavy
Weight hovering over me and
I can’t shift my mind to anything other
Than trains gliding harshly across my body
Sharp rocks stabbing
Guns shooting
I swear I hear you say I’m misunderstood-

Why is it that you
Can’t feel the moons blood dripping on your pillow?
Why can’t you see the tears burning through?
Acid in my eyes, I feel like I can’t see myself in the light
I don’t want to stay in the dark, it’s too dull
