Does It Go Away When You Close Your Eyes? - Poem by Dan Brown
Troubled life leaves troubled mind,
Sleep the only answer I can find.
Sleep brings ignorance, with that comes bliss,
Past caring what you miss.
The truth is, though; it never stops churning,
Images, memories, and feelings burning
inside your head, branding your brain,
Even in sleep you feel the pain.
Laying down, resting your head,
Allows emotions which you thought were dead
to creep up, stalk you through the night
A sheet of darkness in which there is no light.
Betrayal, hurt, anger and sadness,
Entwined with loneliness, shame and madness.
Haunting, taunting, torturing you,
There’s no escape, no matter what you do.
I see in your eyes, you’re hiding tears,
I hear the heart, that no one else hears.
It screams in pain, I hear it weep,
It cries and dies even when you sleep.
Torn apart and driven to despair,
Driven away and no one cares.
Forget apologies, thanks and goodbyes,
It will go away this time when you close your eyes.
