From tears to calm,

Through your fa├žade, your shield

I can see

The shattered you within.

The cracked heart,

The tattered soul.

I beg you, please

To let it all go.

Don't hold it in.

For the more you do,

The more I know;

That all is not well

You're breaking inside.

I'm always near

Should you feel the need

To share with me

Your hopes and dreams,

Your fears and hates,

And all in between.

Where do they go?

When you force them down?

Those terrors,

Those tears,

That I fear you hold near?

Just a question,

But please, take it close to heart,

Who are you, tell me,

When alone in the dark?
