Cry To Sleep
She hides in her covers and cries herself to sleep.
by Jesse Bauer
Tied to half-truths and whole lies, the reasons she weeps.
Bound so, by a contortionist of hopes and dreams.
One who is there when she needs a shoulder to lean.
He just seems so perfect, she cannot leave his side.
But for him, she is lost. By his law, she'll abide.
so tonight she will hide under her blanket, dear.
crying for joy and for sorrow and, too, for fear.
