You Will Not See Me pt. I


...They're screaming at me...

They called me coward.
But they never truly knew.
What I did feel inside...

...'Lonely is not a feeling when you are alone.
Lonely is a feeling when no one cares.'...

I always used to mask myself with a smile.
Everyone assumed happiness, but you all never knew.
When you found me, we stood together.
But I knew better...

...'It's hard to answer the question 'What's wrong? ' when
nothings right.'...

When you found my scars.
You were heartbroken.
I would have apologized... but we both knew...
Time and time again, the scars kept...

...'I get lost inside me mind.'...

You begged me to stop.
I swear I couldn't.
But I knew I should have heeded...

...'I'm often silent when I'm screaming inside.'...

You could take no more.
But I was too far to listen...
When I last saw you... rivers of tears.
But now you swing...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
