Depression sleeps



No one will say
 ~ I'm not enough
No one will say 
~They aren't comforted by my touch.

My Dreams are where
I am able to hide...
from the sting of words,
and all that hate
within their eyes.

I tried to be what they wanted 
me to be.
But, even then,
They turned on me.

So, In my dreams
I lock them out
I hide away 
I shut out all doubt.

I'm who I think I want to be
When no one else is judging me.
No one can hurt me in here.

No one, 
In here, ignores
~my fears.
