Alright (Pt. 5)

I'm shouting in my sleep for you.
My screams drown out the pain.
I don't know when the last time I rested.
So yes, I'm alright.

I'm dozing off in class
My skin is even paler.
I have a sickly glow.
So yes, I'm alright.

I'm stalking you like a loser.
I keep conscious of my actions.
I've failed at getting you to notice me.
So yes, I'm alright.

You're better at me at everything.
We're always competing.
You keep me on my toes to beat you.
So yes, I'm alright.

I keep having dreams of you.
I'm too scared to fall asleep.
I don't want to face the truth
So yes, I'm alright.

I'm writing this crappy poem
So I can get out my emotions.
I need to empty my head of you.
So yes, I'm alright.
