I cry myself to sleep


I cry myself to sleep because it's the only thing I can do right,
I avoid you because I would rather be alone,

I dress in black so I can be invisible at night,
I stay out late to avoid the fights that go on at home,

I remain misunderstood because no one wants to understand me,
I play my music loud so no one can hear me cry,

I rebel because no one will let things be,
I make a scene so you will notice if I die,

I cut my wrists so I know I'm not numb,
I sleep in late because I'm afraid of the day,

I don't try because everyone just assumes I'm dumb,
I don't talk because I have nothing to say,

I guess I don't need to be understood, I’ll be alright,
I just need you to leave me alone!

Or I might just crumble out here in the dark
Engulfed in my own darkness! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
