Overnight


There was something about that overnight watch
I sat in a hospital chair in a large room
with a few other people,
All being watched
I had a breakdown that made me feel unsafe
To myself

My boyfriend helped me feel safe
I didn't realize I made him feel worried
He called and thus the help-line called me
He took me to the hospital
and watched as I disappeared behind those doors
I knew for sure he loved me
He had even called the next day into my overnight

I thought about everyone in my life
My parents, my brother, my friends
Everyone was worried because they cared
I knew I had to get better

It may have been the end of the spring semester
But I was just getting started
Love was always around; I just needed to look within
I can't give up
And I will never give up.
