Sat I down on the dock by the river
And the watched the brown water flow by
Thought to myself “under the surface is peace”
Peace at last
Peace from your cruel tongue
Peace from your cruel laugh
Peace from your cruel silence
Peace from your “jokes”
Peace from my pain
Pain is all around me, physical and emotional
I cannot live like this any longer
I need rest from this hurt
So you (and my disease) drive me to death
Slip into the water never to rise
Will you ever know what you caused?
Would you even care?
