Painful Eyes

Look a little closer. See behind his eyes of lies. 

All they hold is despair, deceit, and despise. 

He’s breaking into pieces. His heart is on the floor. 

All that he needs is for someone to care a little more. 

He’s been broken since the beginning. Feels destroyed as the years go by. Count his tears before they dry. 

He’s running from happiness. He’s running from fear. 

Doesn’t stop anywhere. There’s no place for him here. 

He’s tried it before. Only to be met with betrayal. He doesn’t trust anymore. Look, that’s gotten him here. 

His future is blurry, it’s never been clear. 

He doesn’t know if he wants one. 

Maybe it should all end right here.
