Lonely nights after a Long Day…..

Stop hurting me please, I can’t take anymore!

Ok so I’ve been having fun trying something I’ve not done before .

I should’ve known you’d respond this way,

I just wanted to feel normal why’s that not ok ?

How long are you going to punish me for having some fun ,

Body and spirit broken, you are such a cruel one.

Just lying here trying to sleep as you go in for the attack,

I have nowhere to go, I’m powerless, I lay here, eyes leaking, on my back .

When you have a chronic illness that causes you pain ,

The nights are so long that they drive you insane.
