I run from the light that reveals me

Into the shadows that consume me

The shadow of guilt

I hold it within myself

Sacrificing my soul to its desire

I hide my face

Yet I can never fool myself

The heartache only grows

I hold in emotions for protection

Emotions that rot

My chest has become a void

Never content until it claims the only thing left

My flesh

I plaster on another smile

And no one knows
