Dark Place

This cant be right.
This isnt normal.
Im trying to hold on tight.
Why do you let go?

I feel like im in a dark place.
Everyone around but noone to understand.
I see everyones face.
They are trying to help me to land.

To stand on my own feet again.
To stop hurting myself.
I will do it if i can.
I just need your hand.

I keep thinking should i pray?
Maybe i should cry?
Its hard to keep pretending everything is okay.
I keep thinking i have to lie.

Lie to my friends.
Lie to people who care about me.
Lie to myself.
This is not the person i want to be.

I dont want to hurt my body.
I dont want to feel like im in a dark place.
But my skies are cloudy.
And rain is falling on my face.

When You are all i have left.
I sit down and pray.
I sit down and cry.
And i hope soon everything will be okay.
