As my head hit the pillows,
My eyes closed.
Don’t haste with thee thoughts,
For they weren’t even sleep.
But were the moist because of you.
Tears fell as I thought about you.
And the more they fell,
The more you drifted away from me.
I cried as much as I could,
But wept slowly so as not to bother the rest.
I cried the whole night,
Without your soothing hand, the whole time.
I cried so that you won’t forget me.
I cried so that you’d remember me.
I shed my tears in sadness,
‘Cause I knew that from now on,
The more I’d love you,
The more you’d hate me.
