Soon You'll Forget Me

by No1ButMe   Jan 9, 2011


If you look at me I'll say I'm fine
Though it's a lie most of the time
Put on a smile and hide the tears
It's been my secret for many years
Don't worry I don't want to die
No one sees it's just a lie
Hide in the dark where no one can see
The only place I can be me
Pick up the blade, hold in my hand
Don't judge me, you'll never understand
As my eyes change, turn to gray
I just want the pain to all go away
I can take the words, and the stares
When it comes down to it no one is there
Heart like stone, no emotion on my face
Can't find light in such a dark place
Put the blade to skin, as red starts to emerge
After all isn't this what I deserve
Invisible to most, seen by only some
I wish I could repeat all that they have done
False truths, that's how I survive
Living each day not ever really alive
Don't ask and keep things the same
It's OK, I've already gone insane
Can you see all the lies
Hidden deep within my eyes
Cut my tears, set me free
Soon I will no longer be me
And as my blood starts to flow
I'm going to finally just let go
Just another bad day, too much stress
My life has turned into such a mess
I pull out the blade, cut it away
Perfect ending to my day
Pull down my sleeves to hide the pain
Don't worry soon you'll forget my name...
