There’s no space for you underneath my bed frame
To hide and pull me through my sheets
To mark my skin with claws and fear.
Call me weak and laugh at me
Because you took my tears and pretty dreams
Replaced them with nightmares
And cold sweat.
Blue and purple thoughts are eating through my brain
Like a virus would spread through its host.
I am your host,
You are my uninvited guest,
Destroying my home
While I lay in bed and don’t do a thing,
Staring at the ceiling above me,
Watching it brittle and fall apart.
And you stay.
You stay and you crawl back under my bed.
You stay and you soak my pillows in black paint.
You stay and you hold my hand to break it.
You stay and you do it all over again.
