When I close my eyes

Close your eyes for a while
It won't hurt so bad
Take a pill
So my mind may slip away
My smile worn 
Tears streak my face
I'm all alone
And now that seems okay
Take another pill
The razor blade marks my body
But I feel no pain
Oh what I'd give to feel the 
pain
I'll close my eyes a while
I dream to stay asleep
I wish to be the person I once 
was
Filled with love and hope
But all I've been given is pain
So when I wash my thoughts 
away
Maybe I can be okay
