Hush

Have you ever cried in your bed? Have you tried to hide it? The lump in your throat that grows tighter and strained as you swallow back sobs. Tears that stream fast and hot as you tightly bolt your eyelids, as you violently shush your eyes. Have you ever done this while lying next to someone?
