Unknown

Unknown
It's sad that people act so bad
you can see in their eyes 
Insecurities 
They walk around like they 
have a hole in their heart
like someone has cut them deep 
Oh, no are they in my dreams?
I looked at them 
I just wanted to touch them
just to see if they are a sleep 
but then I just let things be
I can see they are 
lost into darken dreams 
right along with me 
what does this mean?
I run my fingers up along the walls
down the halls 
hoping no one is following me 
sometimes I could feel 
that old coldness 
that stands always near 
given so much fear 
this time I know 
something is going so wrong 
I feel the heaviness 
on my bear feet 
then a voice comes out of the unknown 
saying I won't tell your secrets 
your secrets are safe with me 
you're my friend 
who walks with me in this pain
I watched you all the times 
you had fallen 
enemies are always at the door
But I will always protect you if I can.
