Turn the screws tighter
Until there's nowhere left to go
Pushing and pulling from all sides
With no relief from the strain
Wound so tight that anything
Sends everything crashing
Down into a cavernous darkness 
Seemingly inescapable
Crying does not take away the hurt
But nothing else can be done
And crying is something
To do when talking is not enough
When there are no arms to hold you
And that's all you wish for 
When the screws are turned
Past what you can bear
