Sometimes…

I sit alone, watching.

The sun shines but

Darkness envelopes me.

I know there is heat

But ice fills my veins.

I smile at them,

I talk and laugh.

But all the time

I'm screaming inside.

Does nobody see it?

The pain I hold.

Oh nobody knows of

The tears left uncried.

Can you hear me?

When I call your name.

Alone in the night

I hide in fear.

Does nobody care

That my soul dies.

I hide the hurt,

Deep within my eyes.

I never cry,

I won't let myself.

But sometimes,

Just sometimes,

I long for a friend.
