I am not what I seem
So please don't believe me
You think I'm nice, pretty, and kind
But really I'm losing every inch of my mind
My mental demons won't leave me alone
Every night my dark room they roam.
This beautiful smile you see
Is only a mask that hides me.
Covering the pain no one can see
But under here it gets hard to breath
This black band covers my wrist of scars
And fears keep me from seeing any lucky stars.
I play tough, secure, and strong
Only to shield the tears I cry all night long.
Can I have someone to hold me tight?
At least just for my last night
As I slowly leave this unforgiving place
It would be nice to see a loving face.
