"Of the faded echoes crying out words will never hurt me... of course they did. But our lives will only continue to be a balancing act... that has less to do with pain, and more to do with beauty..." - Shane Koyczan, To This Day Project.

Truth be known,

I miss you,

But you don't know,

Because I'm not with you


If I cry out into the void,

Will you be there to hear?

If I sit in silence, waiting,

Will my echo stretch out for years?


I tell you I don't care,

While deep down I'm screaming,

I tell you that I'm okay,

But tears leave my eyes gleaming


I'm not depressed, I'm happy,

I might look like I'm flying,

But at 3am, early in the morning,

I tend to actually be crying


You believe most of what I say,

So, really, why not this?

Is it because of my tears?

I promise I'm in bliss


But truth be known,

You won't see me cry,

And the reason why I'm happy,

Is because you believed my lie

Dunno. Just kind of flowed out from my heart to my brain to my fingers. Enjoy.
