Strong.

I am tired of staying strong
when my whole world is falling apart;
I want to fall along with it
and give into the dark.

I told people to stay strong,
forgetting how hard it is to fight
All the demons and the pain
while blinded by the night.

Now I am slowy fading,
evaporating into thin air.
Ripping apart my soul
and stopping only if someone cares.

It hurts to stand tall
when I am shorter than most.
It hurts to live
when I am living in the shadow of a ghost.

Someone please hold me tight,
and never let me go.
I want to believe everything will be alright;
don't lie to me, yet give me hope.

I won't allow myself to feel happy
if it is all in vain.
I won't let myself feel sunlight,
only the wet, gloomy rain.

I am tired of staying strong
when my whole world is falling apart;
I want to fall along with it
and give into the dark.
