Bone deep sorrows melt into flesh

I had this counter in my mind.
Number of days since last screaming cry
Turned over back to zero
Not really counting the days but my body is.
The tension floods out even as the pain wells
And finally, wrung out, blurry eyed
Fall into sleeps embrace

A day alone sleeping
No battery recharge
A resting hum
Fading into dream
Hopefully
At last
A life of love
If only in a dream
Temporary
As all things are
