The Carousel

Its not like I can stop,
I can’t just leave it all behind,
I know I can’t tell anybody,
but I can’t get it off my mind,

I haunts me like a ghost,
hangs over me like a storm,
but somehow you can’t see it,
beneath this act that I perform.

I’m such a hypocrite,
a liar, a horrible friend,
but I’m too scared to tell you,
scared our friendship will end.

We’re going in circles,
my life’s become a carousel,
I want so badly to just get off,
to escape this living hell.

i like this one and finding the cure... http ://teenink .com /poetry/song_lyrics/article/152121/Finding-the-Cure/ Finding the cure has a really good rhythm to it, and it shows that you have been through a lot in your life... all of your poems do. Its good to see that you are channeling your past into such creative forms of genius!!!

I think it is a very close tie between this one and Finding the Cure... http ://teenink .com /poetry/song_lyrics/article/152121/Finding-the-Cure/ I like these two, along with all of yours, because they are so true. You can tell you have been through a lot in your life and you have found a very positive and creative way to get out how you feel and I think that is inspirational... =D
