I'm here

Post by hope1994 » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:22 pm

I smile by day,
I cry by night.
I say "I'm happy." -
but that's just not right.
I traveled through heaven
just to end up in hell;
underneath my silence
is a yell for help.
I don't need someone to save me,
no knight in shining armor,
nobody to carry me through the dark.
All I need -
it's really quite simple -
is someone to care,
to wipe the tears,
a shoulder to cry on,
someone saying "I am here."
Because beneath every smile
there is a frown and
behind every sparkle in my eyes,
you'll find they're all tears masquerading around,
and you always look away as I lift
my face in prayer to the skies,
and the cat that scratched me,
it was really just a knife;
Because silenced by every laugh
is a bloodcurdling scream,
and every stray tear
is just the beginning,
and this mask I wear is
starting to crack,
and once it does
there's no holding back.
