Words are unspoken,

Things are not said,

But everything she feels is stuck in her head.

The sighs of a hurting, broken heart

Her feelings inside tear her apart.

Words that whisper, 

"You're worthless,"

She can do nothing but believe it's true

It hurts bad but there's nothing she can do. 

She feels home fade away

And reaches out for it to stay.

She prays that she'll feel better

And beautiful to some one,

But she seems to wait forever 

And the feeling doesn't come.

No one knows the tears she shed,

When the world is quiet and she lays in bed.

The world is cruel,

The pain is real,

But no one knows,

Because she hides how she feels.
