A Thousand Words

A thousand words that were left unsaid,
a thousand tears I was afraid to shed,
The life I lived in fake smiles and laughs,
and the pain I hid behind my mask.
Wish I could spread my wings and fly away,
instead I'm forced to sit here and stay.
The scars that I refused to show,
and all the things you'll never know.
A picture of the things I'm hiding,
and a room I sit alone in trying.
I miss my friends, my joyful ways,
now I'm stuck watching my own life in a haze.
Wondering when I can finally leave,
and show the world who I want to be.

A thousand words left unsaid,
and a thousand tears I refused to shed.
A life I no longer controlled,
a life that everyone else stole.
Once a candle that burned bright,
but someone chose to snuff my light.
But I guess the dark is where I'm meant to be,
in a place where no one else can see.
If invisible is what I am,
and left alone I am forced to stand.
I don't know if I can live this life,
but still I try and try to fight.
Weather for myself, and my hopeless ways,
or for others who need me to stay.

A thousand words that were left unsaid,
and a thousand tears I refused to shed.
Now I constantly sit on my edge,
wishing someone would push me off this ledge.
and let me fall.
