Staring up with empty eyes
So full of emotion, cannot cry
Hold it back, be so strong
This can only last so long

A wave of frustration washes over
Suddenly you're doubled over
Ripping at your hair, wanting to scream
Wake up; this can only be a dream

Open eyes, look up than lower
Sit back and curl up in your sorrow
Don't bother to shake the hair out of your eyes
Don't make a sound, no groans or sighs

For no sound can describe the feeling
Look up at the ceiling
Remembering better times
Recalling happier rhymes

Those days are gone, never to return
And you're left with the uncomfortable burn
Of the thought that you complained so much when,
Things were really so simple then
