Hiding

hiding from prying eyes

huddle alone and cold

leaving shelter behind

and headed for strange lonely shores

far from my friends

the people i most love

laying alone at night

hiding crying eyes

pretending i'm not here

praying for invisibility

wishing i was gone

none of it works

condemning me to a life

of loneliness and tears

pretending to be happy

yet dying inside

hiding
