And I was dead,
Dead within these layers of thick skin.
Fake smiles, unbearable love,
Please, help me! I want these lights dimmed.
I want you gone,
Gone for a better tomorrow maybe.
For when I look at you and see us,
I see you turning into a soul in pain.
When I hear your pleads,
I can’t help but feel helpless.
Constantly wanting to disappear,
For I am a coward with aged tricks.
I want these lights dimmed,
I want my eyes closed,
I want me to feel like I’ve disappeared,
For I don’t want to be seen,
I don’t want to be heard,
I just want you happy,
But I know I can just hurt.
So, go before you are damaged,
To the point of no repair.
These eyes full of secrets you seek,
Have nothing but a dead fiend to spare.
