When you want to feel, even pain eludes you.

When you want to cry, but tears fail you.

When you're all alone even when you're not.

And "you" feels like all you've got.


When anger is the only passion you feel.

When the love of others doesn't seem real.

When the depth of lonliness is found.

And yor heart bursts without a sound.


When no one hears your screams inside,

They don't understand that you hide

A secret? No, but a darkness within

All tucked behind a lovely grin.
