After Tonight
Author: Tammy


Inside my heart is dying
it's withering right away.
My life is closing around me
while I lay here in dismay.
So much pain fills me up
I am starting to drown.
I lay here crying in silent
never making a sound.
Tears rush from my eyes
like they often do.
This pain has abused my mind,
and played me for a fool.
I am like a puppet
dangling on a string.
Tormented day, and night from
the painful stings.
But now I've grown so tired
no fight left in me.
After tonight this pain
will finally set me free.
Then my spirit it shall soar
above the darkened sky.
Yes after tonight the pain will
leave when my heart has died.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is another old poem I wrote after I found out he was cheating on me. I felt so much pain, and I didn't think the pain would ever go away, and I wanted to die.
