Black Curtains

Does she glance out the window

As she cries herself to sleep?

The one who's thinking of that girl

Whose heart continues to weep

Does she look at the world around her

As she tries to tune herself out?

Playing music only she can hear,

Songs of what she once dreamed about

Do her thoughts ever stop racing

To the things she's left behind?

She's secure inside her bed,

But not so safe inside her mind

Is there any way to see through

These black curtains that tint what's real?

She can't handle the emotions

That she tries desperately not to feel

Can anyone really tell her

What to do to make things okay?

There's only so many words

Before you run out of things to say

Does she glance out the window

As she cries herself to sleep?
