when the silence of night takes over
when the being happy just seems like too much effort
when everyone's back is turned
when all hope ceases to exist
when laughing becomes painful
when you look at the stars and wonder why they are so small
when music is the only way you speak
when everything is just a shade of grey
when you just can't run fast enough
when the sky really is falling
when secrets no longer exist
when being pushed and pulled makes you break
when the sting of being stabbed in the back turns numb
when just being yourself seems like a foreign concept
when you run out of tears
when the spark in your eye dies
when you reach to find nothing
when love is a wish not an emotion
when you can feel your heart detearierate
when leaving your room is a chore
when you wish you could just be good enough
when reality takes over
when the world is more cruel than ever
when crying is how you communicate
when you realize you have to lift yourself up
when destruction turns into recontruction
when you duct tape your life back together
when you finally grow a smile on your face
when you look up and see the sun smiling back at you
when all your efforts pay off
when you see the true you
