Dawn

I look at the light coming in through my window,
it's early morning and everything appears serene and calm.
Except my heart which feels like a raging ocean during a storm,
dashing against every solid structure it can find,
wreaking insane havoc.

And just like during a storm,
the sea makes its way to the land,
my eyes tear up.
My tortured soul has been ripped wide open with pain,
about losing everything that it loves,
and losing the people who really care,
these thoughts kept me up all night,
killing me from within,
but with a smile on my face for the world outside.
