Last night…

18 April 2015

I broke the soundless night; in bed, I cried
My searing flow of tears would not subside
Despondent I could ever feel so low
And think this pain the worst there was to know

Though maybe unrequited love and I
Are truly intimate, and we have grown
Together in the dark watching me cry
Together in the dark I’m not alone

But surely that’s a madness in my head
For achingly I am alone in bed
As my love comforts other men I weep
Embarrassed that I let myself lose sleep

So with a shameful sadness and hurt pride
I broke the soundless night; in bed, I cried
