    She looks at the shadows dancing on her walls
    Thinking over and over, about the times u let her fall
    Her room is lit by only candle light
    The only brightness in the fearless dark night
    Closing her eyes, she remembers her past
    Wondering why it seems only her pain has to last
    She holds the pain deep inside
    Its this pain, she thinks she must hide
    No one ever really tries to understands
    Alone with her blood running down her arm she stands
    Her shell is finally pealing away
    If you saw her like this...what would you say?
    You say you know her, you think that too
    But what you think and say...simply isn’t as true
    Sitting, breathing, staring at the candle flame
    She sits in her room, wishing someone would just ask her name
    No one knows who she is, the insecurities that she hides
    The fears that she holds, bottled up inside
    Holding her knees up to her chest,
    Back and forth she rocks, medicine...most suggest
    They told her that she needed to start it right away
    So now she takes it, twice every day
    Most think its helping, but really...it’s all pretend
    She doesn’t want to hurt anymore...wishing it would all end
    The one final thing everyone can’t see
    Is that this girl they all speak of...is just like me

    one so ask of thee name
    fear not the love one claim
    feelin all ya deep within pain
    twice a day helps in ways
    but to unfold da mystery
    will do the same
    by candle lite
    u let go , dis be da love u know
    the pain and heart felt maze
    will pass in the twinkle glaze
    i hear the silent cry
    offer my arms of comfort
    don't ask why
    so up in flyte now i fly !

    tyte emotions flowin here ...........
