With every bone in my body
I sleep in darkness
I wake in darkness
Never seeing the sun
I taste the sweet
But only acknowledge the bitter
When she touches me with her warm hands
I only feel the ice
Her smile stirs no passion within me
Her words move me to no other place
The clock that ticks gets louder
Every time she enters the room
The atmosphere once light
Heavies and falls in mid air
I sit I stare
I wonder when the silence will end
In my mind I beg
Someone please take me out of here
I once loved her I remember
Now all I feel is hate
I curse every breath she takes
But I cannot leave
For she has given me my reason to be
Upstairs in his bed sleeps our son
He needs his father he needs me
