At Home In The Dark

It's all about wanting to express to someone how you truly feel, but find that you can never be honest with yourself, let alone other people

You expressed your words

Better than I could've ever done

You always showed yourself to the world

Truthful, words shine out like rays of the sun

 

The callings from my heart flow easily

Maybe I can love you someday without fear

Maybe I could break down my defences

We will mould as one and disappear

 

Here I am encased in fear 

Using loneliness as a shield

Because I dread the day they discover

How I truly feel

 

I feel at home in the dark

As eyes from the outside looking in

My courage drained, pale and thin

Am I stronger than this

Or will I always be condemned 

 

The callings from my heart flow easily

Maybe I can love you someday without fear

Maybe I could break down my defences

We will mould as one and disappear

My expressions in words powerful

But a light flickers and dies

Because I can never reveal

How my heart truly feels

The End
