Tonight I Cry No Tears

Those voices keep me up at night
I barely get any sleep
When the window brings the morning light
There’re no voices to keep
Sometimes they scare my heart to death
Sometimes they make me shiver
I lie awake with bated breath
While my eyes cry a river
There are no problems with me I’m sure
I am just about fine
Tonight I shut and secure the door
Face them with a spine
Tired of being a slave I am
They only play with my fears
Tonight I show no fear to them
Tonight I cry no tears

  1. Dear Frank, Good day. I’m a fan of your work but that doesn’t matter now. Suppose I love a poem you wrote or find a few lines from your words that resonates with me, how do you prefer I cite you when I want to quote it in some other page?

    Kindly write me soon. Much admiration, Chacha.
