Always the quiet one, the one who stays silent I'll continue to be quiet, not saying a word, Never calling your behavior out But, I'll write it down, make a note, create a mark For every time I've been disappointed, wronged, or hurt I won't let it out, but I won't forgive or forget Stored in my mind, chained in my chest
Tears flowed from a pleading soul.
Always the picture of composure, While underneath, a lonely smile crumbles Forever, I dance in sync With this masquerade of solidarity
Innocence shed in the bleak realization Of a night without end
Melancholy fills Depths of my soul, hollow shell Emptiness abounds
