All alone with your thoughts,
Lost to the world.
Everyone around you laughing,
You're caught up in a whirl.
No one knows your brilliance,
No one knows your pain,
No one knows you even exist,
And it's driving you insane.
You cry yourself to sleep at night,
Run from disturbing dreams.
Trying not to think of
The terror the sun brings.
What happened to that darling girl?
The one who used to smile-
You thought she was full of joy,
But she was dying all the while.
