My Insight

I sense you choking back your tears
I watch you fighting silent wars
You have no idea how much I see
In those weary, bloodshot eyes of yours

A past worse than most have seen
A pain you’ve held since childhood
I don’t know how you can bear it
But I know there’s not many who could

You don’t think that I can hear you
While you’re crying there alone
You don’t know that I listen
As your heart spills over the phone

I wish there was some kind of way
I’d give you all I am
To see your solemn sadness shatter
And you to be happy again

You mean more than the world to me
I know that you always will
But to see you like this everyday
Please, just know, it kills
