Draw out the pain,

Evade the shame,

Cry no more,

Go insane,

Nothing can stop you,

Nothing will heal,

Once something can break you,

Nothing will yield.

Once you live out your days,

Counting the hours,

Seconds tick by,

And still,

Nothing matters,

Can't shake the feeling,

That nobody's watching,

Alone on your stairwell,

Sitting and waiting.

Through it all

You see the door,

Hands and knees

To polished floor,

Rushing up,

It's so much stronger,

Fading faster,

Even longer
