Hopeless Plight

Hopeless Plight (10/2/2012)

I'm only human
I know
Yet I still do this
I'll help anyone who needs it
But I'll ignore my own needs
It's like my brain doesn't know
When it needs to cry for help
It's been under for so long
It feels normal
But not

How can I know
When it's getting too much?
When I've always, always coped
Just fine
On my own
It's easier to just keep it inside
Why make others worry
With my hopeless plight?

I keep to myself when I'm low
I scribble useless notes
Where I used to pray
I yell curses
When I used to laugh
I glare at strangers
For no reason
I have the ability
To be so cold

How can I know
When it's getting too much?
When I've always, always coped
Just fine
On my own
It's easier to just keep it inside
Why make others worry
With my hopeless plight?

Maybe it's true I should share
But how can you say that
When your just the same

Your the only person I could
never be cold to
Your the only person who can
Glance under my skin
But even now I can't
Can't let anything out 

The End
