Thoughts - They Drown (Part 1)

So close, yet so far –
Always wishing on that star.

Always up, never down -
Yet I feel as though I’ll drown.

My lovely exterior may seem placid -
But my mind is seething with pure acid.

Consuming, rusty thoughts indeed -
Cuts my heart – so deep, it bleeds.

Deceitful laughs and false smiles -
Make you walk that extra mile.

Behind my walls of hurt and lies -
I hide, I wait, muff’ling my cries.

There you stand – Heartless and jaded -
Countless words said but now they are faded.

Helpless, lonely – feelings I can’t avoid -
All hopes and dream forever destroyed.
