The Nightmare Inside of Me

Everyday I don my mask
Sometimes it is a torturing task
How does one hate crowds
but fear being alone
I fix my mask and
hope it doesn't crack
Sometimes I cannot tell
wear the mask ends and I begin
My soul is cold
A nightmare inside of me
I hide the monster everyday
I fear it will never be tame
I hide the tears I wish to shed
I hope that soon
Someone will rescue me
from the monsters and the
darkness
Some come close to defrosting me
but soon they give up
and walk away
and I turn cold once more
My heart is cold, frosted over
frozen by the fear of the nightmare
The nightmare inside of me
I want to run and hide
from the monster inside
from the nightmare I live
from the past I cannot forget
from the future that is inevitable

I know you doubt it, and I swear, I did too, and sometimes still do, but all ends well and time will tell. Time will heal the things that cannot be mended.
