Lights

 

There are countless lights around my head.

Like stars in the beauty of the night.

I know you don’t see them.

I know you don’t care.

That’s okay I know how you feel.

You are as lonely as I used to be and you feel as misunderstood as I felt.

You hear a thousand voices in your ears. They tell you what to do.

You have a thousand things to do. But your day seems to be too short.

You feel tired when you go to bed and when you wake up. It’s been a while since you dreamed.

You feel the tears are crawling up behind your eyes. It’s been a while since you cried.

You see tiny red drops flowing down your skin. It’s been a while since you felt the pain.

You are prisoner of your life.

You know you can’t escape.

Your pillow is the only one who hears your screaming.

I know how you feel.

And it’s okay.

Cause one day you will see that you can just take my hand. And then I will show you the lights.

Just take my hand.

I’ve been holding it out the whole time.

And it’s not going anywhere.
