It is what it is

"Mommy Daddy" I screamed I cried
Several times still no one replied

"I need you Mommy'It's dark I'm Scared
Deep down I knew she wouldn't Appear

I'd beg more for daddy
But why should I try
Iv'e tired once before
He ignores all my cries

So I lay there and weep
Tears like raindrops when falling
This isn't a first
For these nocturnal callings

I wake up with tremors
My roommate alert
My sheets soaked with sweat
My head starts to hurt

My roommate assumes
It's BS and drama
But It's actually my symptoms
Of childhood trauma
