It is all I can do not to cry

It's a little morose, but I can't apologise for that. And I never write free verse, so I'd appreciate some feedback on that if you have some to share.


1. It is all I can do not to cry

If sleep came to me so easily 
as those dreaded bouts of sorrow
the crippling ache that doused my sight in grey
or the sudden fright given by those
endless nights of hopelessness
that make me this hollow shell of a girl
a fragile facade of delicate smiles
a whisper of who I was
who I may have been

Oh my darling I would sleep until 
my mind bled dry of dreams 
until dreams were but a dream themselves
a memory of a world
I'd never truly known.
