Lie To me

By , Longmont, CO
It's getting harder all the time, to hide the pain from sight
Pushing you harder, until you're far past the point of healing
I've sent you into a void, shattered and broken.
Sending you farther with every shove, but you refuse to give up.

I see you now, crawling back to the surface to make it through another day.
The nightmares leave circles under your eyes, but no one else can see the tears.
Bruised and bleeding on the inside, hiding it from view, so no one knows your fears.
Put on a mask, be strong for everyone else. I know you're dying my dear.

You put a smile on your face, like that makes everything alright.
It's all a lie, but I'm the only one that sees the pain beneath your eyes.
You're a mess tied together by the people who need you
And you think you're clever, hiding only behind a single smile,

I know you force yourself up every time, and hide behind your lie
You greet them all like you're just fine,
{You hold them close, listen to their pain, let them cry.
When the whole time you want to break down and die. } CHANGE

You can't hide from the one that knows you best,
You can't lie to the only one that feels your pain
The only one you're fooling is All the others
You can't lie to me, you can't lie to yourself

OMG OMG OMG! I just got like a brain blast which i think you'd be awesome at. Why don't you take something like this and have it based from 2 different peoples view, and in the end it all ties in together? That'd be so cool ^^
