NUMB

And then a smile lights up her face,
Brightening the world
As her eyes sparkle.
No one sees the tears that shine,
No one feels the pain.
It’s all a part of life,
They say
You have to lose something to gain.

She’s screaming inside
But the world is deaf.
Everything is dark
And it’s beautiful
Like a sad song.
She can’t see,
She can’t hear,
She can’t feel.
She couldn’t be more at peace
For she’s too numb
To feel the pain.

Pretending everyday
With an evergreen smile,
Oh, she’s tired
Of being happy.

Standing atop a precipice
All she wants to do is
Scream out loud and
Cry her heart out –
But there is no one to see.

They say tomorrow will be alright.
But no,
Tomorrow is far away.
All she needs is a bit of love,
Today.
A bit of understanding,
Today.
To run away,
To go astray,
To find a reason to smile,
Some peace.
