I look around me
See I am not alone
I am lonely among all
No one sees my pain
I hide it inside me
No one sees my tears
I wipe them away
I bury my fears
I don’t open myself
For another blow to my soul
Would surely end me
Love is but a dream
Not ever in my life
Pain suffering coexist in me
I am not me anymore
I have disappeared gone
I hide behind a mask
Seeing but not a part
Existing but not living
I hide my pain, tears, and fears
I will not show them
I will not share them
Please save yourself
Let me go let me fade
