Accusing eyes, they follow my back.

I walk away, ignoring the fact

That I know my heart hurts from every glare,

But no one notices, no one cares.

For those who hate me, they cannot tell

That I'm torn apart between life and hell.

For those who love me, the precious few,

Don't see past my mask, I won't let them to.

The tortured soul inside me cries,

I watch in anguish as it dies.

I try not to show the pain I feel,

But no one can help, No one can heal.

But here, no matter how I try,

The pain's too much, It cannot hide.

My life's tearing itself apart,

But I cannot tell; my pledge to my heart.
