Inside my Mind

Inside my Mind

There are things I have trapped inside my mind,

Things I can't speak of because I'm too afraid,


Many tell me that if I talk it'll all be fine,


I won't talk because I can't be saved.


I smile despite the voices telling me to stop,


I tell everyone I'm fine when I'm not,


I never felt like I was on top,


I want everyone to be okay because I feel the hurt a lot.


It's hard when you're surrounded by shame,


The pain takes over and I can't control my mind,


Everyone always thinks that I'm happy all the same,


But it hurts worse every fucking time.


I tell myself it's fake but it never feels that way,


The idea makes me want to do things I don't want to do,


I can't speak the words in fear of what they'll say,


The guilt of telling my pain would be the same if I were to kill you.


I don't want to hurt anyone yet I do everyday,


The voices in my head feel like I'm being stabbed in the heart,


I try to tell myself it's okay,


But eternally I'm falling apart.


I just want some peace from all this pain,


All these selfish songs I should've never sang


But the cloud over my head never stops it's rain,


Now my spirit will be the one to hang.
