It's cold and dark where I exist, if you reach my eyes, you'll see what I mean.   

I may seem fine, even as I cry, but the moonlight knows it is all an act.

The shadows hide, putting up a mask, guarding broken pieces, that still haunt my mind.

Even when the wounds are in plain sight, those who take a look seem to be left blind.

Maybe they're just scared to walk in the dark, and can't face the demons lurking deep inside.

The fear of love seems to keep them far, echoes from the past form a blackened heart.

And they end up running, leaving me behind, with a fake promise carving one more scar.

And I still stayed open, showing all the cards; was it my mistake to think it would last?

      When does the show end ? When do you find yourself being the truest self?

      • LIZ

        Takes a lot of work, and everyone has their own way of dealing with things!!! BUT, for me, when I let go and was finally able to
        be completely honest with myself. I started to put mysel first and learned I'm in charge of my happiness. 🤗

          Happy for you. I hope you never falter
