Broken Wings

She said “this is me
And everything I write down
Subscribes an issue to what I see
And maybe I’m lost and have no clue
But everything I write
Turns into things I never do
And with my arms
I open them wide
I write down my feelings
But on the outside I hide
And I say I give my all
To everything I put forth
But in the end I just fall
Because I’m not saying the
Things on my mind
I’m turning around
And being lost is what I find
And I tell you I know what to do
I say I love
But I never show you
And maybe that’s my biggest mistake
And we’ll find the last chapter
Is where my feelings are at stake
But if I tell you ‘here I am
Come with me
I’ll show you everything I strive to be’
I’m setting myself up for a risk
And right now
I’m not sure of this
Because what you don’t see
Is I’m so broken inside
I try to cover up
How you make me feel so alive
Because I’m just the girl
And you’re an extraordinary boy
Who will never get to see
The things I employ
And if you could love
More than you ever could before
And tell me I’m beautiful
For what I endure
Then I would show you the world
Through my eyes tonight
And everything inside
Would be a spark that ignites
You would find who I am
And I would leave nothing out
You deserve that much
For being in this drought
And I’m sorry for that
Hiding it from you stings
Because I’m just the girl
With the beaten up, broken wings”
