But she keeps me alive

About a girl being saved from herself

I scream

as i sink into the corner

in my head

I tell every one that asks "I'm alright"

One person saw my eyes

And knew I lied

To this day

She protects me with her life.

She tells me " I love you"

as I leave the room

She makes sure I eat

during lunch time

I call her my mother

even though she is not.

I love her with all my heart

She saved my life.

With out her

I'd probably be dead.

She gave me strength

And helped me be myself

Because truthfully

I was tried of lying to myself

I tried my best

To be happy

But it just didn't work out.

Because my eyes

never played along.

They had a mind of there own

and they still do.

I love her

because she knew

when no one else even noticed

She never believed me

when I said "I am fine"

But she keeps me alive.

I love her even after

time ends.
