I give up and color my black eyes white

To match translucent skin.

The mask they see on the outside

Is not what lies within.

I lie to those who say that they

Love me like the rain

But what they refuse to realize

Is that I am their bane.

Leave me to wilt in a crevice of sorrow

To me it is nothing new,

I go and lay me deep below,

Left here, I'll only hurt you
