Why does it have to be me?

You lie in bed asleep,

While I sit in a dark corner,

Petrified of my own thoughts.

I can't sleep because you'll be there. 

Slowly I slip into madness.

Pounding my head against the wall,

Screaming at the shadows in my closet.

Why can't anyone hear me?!

Why will no one listen?!

I just want to sleep.

I just want to live my life without the fear of seeing you again.

Then everything goes silent.

I'm still sitting in a dark corner,

Waiting for daylight to save me from my own prison.

The only sound I hear,

Is the steady beat of a heart that craves peace.

The only thing I feel, is tears running down my cheeks.

Slowly I slip deeper into madness.

Then daylight breaks through my blinds.

I look out my window,

Put on my mask

And start my day.

As if none of it ever happened.

No one will ever notice that I'm hiding so much,

And that's the way it will stay.

Because if I told them what was going on in my brain,

They wouldn't understand.

So I'll just stay in my corner filled with demented thoughts and sink into madness.
