Not Safe

I’m not safe with my own thoughts
Lend me yours for the night--
  So I can close my eyes
  So I can rest my mind
  So my heart can untwist itself

I’m not safe in my own bed
  Alone with the pain
  Echoes of tears
  Across the chasm of years
  Fresh on my face

I’m not safe in my own mind
  The thoughts are crowding me out
  Pushing away peace
  Recalling the chaos
  Rippling through the past

Let me breathe
 Let me release
     Let me be
