I Care Myself To Rest - Poem by Lindsay Maasdorp

I cry myself to sleep wondering if caring is the only way to be me

If I really have to give it all to receive nothing at most and brokenness at least

I cry myself to sleep feeling the pain of a hand that grips my heart pressing from all sides

Squeezing, smothering

I cry myself to sleep

Will it stop
Will it go away
Will I know a beautiful day
When the words you say
Wipes away my tears
I cry myself to sleep

Make it stop
Make it dry
Make me care free
Yet be completely me

I care myself to rest
