Maybe it's Just Me

They say that there’s a certain type of feeling

That defines you

That hurts you

That changes you

 

Or maybe that’s just me

 

They would tell me depression

Had physical scars

Scars you could see

I wondered what that pain I felt was

The emptiness

 

No one knew

 

Maybe it was just me

Anxiety was not panic attacks

But a feeling you get up on

Stage

I often wondered what I was feeling

The suffocating fear in my chest

Embedded in my heart

 

I figured everyone went through what I was feeling

But as I got older I wondered

 

Maybe it was just me

 

Maybe

No one will understand me

Because maybe this feeling

Isn’t real

 

They tell you

That you’re in it for the attention

And I think yeah, maybe

It’s just me

 

All in my head,

I’m just looking for an excuse to escape

 

And it sends me in a spiral

Wondering who to trust

And I look around

 

This can’t be just me

 

There has to be someone,

Anyone, out there

Who knows

 

Who knows and tells themselves

 

Maybe it’s just me
