I sit there in silence,
Alone in the dark,
Listening to the soft hum
Of the words that float around
In a familiar and gentle sound.
Staring at the empty room before me,
Wondering where I went wrong.
When I lost sight of who I am,
And forgotten where I stand.
Lost and insecure, I wait
Wondering what is to be my fate.
My demons clawing at my throat,
No words to say, I sit alone.
The darkness slowly closing in,
My heart torn up deep within.
All cuts and scars never to be seen,
By the words I've heard,
The words I scream.
I look okay, but I am not
I hide it all in a smile, and a nod.
I push away the prying eyes,
I've already said too many goodbyes.
My trust shattered, no safe place to be,
My broken spirit a puzzle to me.
Just me and the words,
Those that stitch together,
I'll remain alone, in time forever.
When will I find someone to trust?
To wipe away the dust,
Of a shattered memory,
A shattered heart.
Maybe that's what I need,
To learn to love,
And open up what was torn apart.
Accept the differences,
Forget the past,
Find something that will last.
