It's there,

In the back of my mind

Eating away at the happiness I'm feeling.

It doesn't let it through,

Trying to kill it

Ending the warm feeling

And starting the cold.

Wetness falls,

Dryness flees

Warmth goes

Coldness comes.

Curling up

Pretending your alone

Trying to be quiet

But failing.

Shaking terribly,

Cuddling yourself,

Not letting go.

Trying to find the warmth,

Happiness, even,

But coming up cold and blank.

Wetness doesn't leave,

Until you float into unconsciousness,

Leaving the warmth behind,

Curled in coldness.
