A Tear on My Pillow

By Shino Yume

I am so confused anymore
Things have been getting to me
Everyone I talk to anymore
Seems to make me cry
I don't know how much longer I can take it
Before my head explodes.
I don't think I've ever cried in a thousand years
These must be the tears that have been
Locked away in my soul for so long

Why do people wear masks?
Why do people pretend so much?
Our lives are not really what they seem
Why do people lie to each other?
Why do people hurt other people?
Other people like me.

It's been a long hard day
And I find myself in tears again
Why is it that people can get to me?
Why am I suddenly able to cry so much?
It's exhausting to be so confused
I'm so tired now
I guess I will go rest
And cry some more
I will have to fall asleep
With a tear on my Pillow
