I am the world's best actress
I do not say this out of arrogance or deceit
I say this because...
Day-to-day I pretend I am fine
But I am not.
I am sinking
Into a pit of darkness
Where I am cold, alone and insecure.
I am vulnerable,
There is nothing that is left to hang onto,
I am afraid.
Your shouts echo off the walls of my mind
Repeating over and over again what a child should never hear
I am a child and I am alone.
There is no-one I can talk to
No-one I can trust
The tears stream from my cheeks
One by one
they fall down
But no-one knows
That I am empty inside
That I am dying
You don't realise what you are doing to me,
by doing this to her.
But why don't you know?
Because I am the world's best actress.
My mask covers up what I am,
how I feel.
I bite my lip and resist the urge to speak up.
It's not like you'll listen anyway,
But you wouldn't know,
You'll never know what you did to me,
Are doing to me, to her.
I am dying,
but my mask will never tell.
No-one will know
how far deep I am
in my pit of despair
If someone would just take enough time to stop and look,
they'd see my mask is made of sellophane,
and that they'd know all along.
Ignorance may be bliss,
but I am losing me,
because of you. I am fading away.
And so is she.
But you'll never know,
That I am hollow
I'll keep sinking,
Because of you.
