    I TRIED.

    I tried to brush away the
    haunting memories and nightmares every night.
    I tried to brush away the
    pain but everything goes in vain.
    I tried to
    be the strong woman who everyone talks about.
    I tried to
    bleed myself to live and ink it out to relive.
    I tried to
    put up a show every morning only to curl up and myself to sleep every night.
    I tried to
    keep myself up with the raging wind only to realize that I've been sailing a drowning ship.
    I tried to
    bleed myself again tonight only to realize that nothing makes sense like
    EVERY OTHER NIGHT.
