Confessions: Broken

Tears streaming down the drain
Un-echoed screams
Hand 'gainst the shower wall

Heart-numbing solitude
A covered face
That shudders to be touched

Sleepless, weary, pacing
Unreasoned pain
A pillow-smothered sob

The shades and curtains drawn
Oppressive sun
Endless, black-fingered shade

Minutes, weeks pass un-named
Brain-breaking dark
Numb, aching for relief

Gasping the leaden air
Another breath
Another weariness
