The people are gone; your friends aren't there
No one exists, but do you care?
People don't understand- they can't see
What you desperately try to hide from me.
You can let your secrets be kept
But sometimes those needs of yours must be met
By others who care for you
Just as much or more than I do.
Don't hide in the dark or play these games
You used to be open- now you're not the same.
Thinking you can fool your closest friends,
But you must be kidding; this has got to end.
Those feelings of darkness show deep in your eyes.
And then, you don't even bother to try
To let that natural light of yours shine though
Dear friend, what is bothering you?
Despair, hurt, guilt and shame
All your faults are bound to your name
Or so says that voice which whispers in your ears
Then broadcasts your thoughts for all to hear.
Please don't hide and don't run away
But rather, listen to what I have to say.
This isn't all fluff- and nor is it lore
This is wisdom and it means a lot more.
Perhaps you will listen and perhaps not
But this madness really must stop
Find a confident or trust in a friend
But these petty games must come to an end.
Here are some last words to you
I really hope you heed them and follow through
Listen to your heart but think with your mind
Keep your soul open to the treasures you may find.
Cry on my shoulder, or if I'm not there
Feel free to call and you know that I care
Please understand I want to see you though
Dear friend of mine, what is bothering you?
