i'm suffocating
i'm smothering
i'm drowning
i'm dying
and you dont even realise

i'm crying
i'm screaming
i'm bleeding
i'm dying
and you dont even realise

i hide it all so well
hide it so you dont see
and you dont even realise

that your child
your baby girl
is falling deeper and deeper
into a darkening
thickening
oblivion

she cries
when theres nothing
to cry about
she buries her face
in pillows and blankets
so you wont hear her
so you wont have the added stress

im screaming
for help
but screaming so quietly
that you dont even realise
