I'm your rock when you're a feather,
My steady coos when you have the blues.
As comforting as your old blanket.
But what you don't see is the hurt inside of me,
When you break, I break too.
Keeping my tears bottled up, I fake a smile,
I'd to anything to make you smile.
I'd run a thousand miles to make you laugh,
Like jingling bells as you shake.
A red blush creeps to your cheeks,
For a while I get lost in your happiness I forget about my sadness.
The pain inside me when I see the scars,
That run up and down my arms.
The screams I scream when I'm at my worst,
The blades laughing at me as tears escape.
But your memory stops me from doing anything rash,
And I go through the memories of you like a secret stash.
My hearts starts to beat and a smile breaks across my face,
Wiping back my tears I put on my mask.
And if you only knew that when I'm with you,
It's never a masquerade when you come into play,
You're my life line as I feel like I want to die.
You find out my secret and hold me dear,
You break down my walls and I shed a single tear.
