In the Dark
It's not that I hear voices
I'm no more crazy than you
I just have this dark heavy feeling
Weighing down everything I say, think or do
It's not that i don't care
In fact I care too much
But the fear of getting burned is real
Crippling fear of ruining all I touch
On the best days I just feel numb
On the worst, disgustingly unclean
I hide myself underneath a smile
Pretending to be what I have never been
I've given up on getting out of here
There's no light, in this dark, to be found
I won't say I've learned to love the dark
But I've begun to know my way around
