Who do I turn to with my deepest, darkest thoughts?
The ones that I have pushed down so far, they’ve forgotten the feeling of the sun?
I’ve tried many times to express the thoughts to those I love
But I only seem to scare them away.
I’ve tried to let those thoughts out slowly
But my loved ones respond with shock and disappointment.
Everyone will tell you they are ‘there for you’
And everyone will say they want to help.
But when you release the monsters and darkness deep deep inside
They will disappear before you can finish.
So instead, you keep them buried.
Wear a smile
Practice a laugh
And keep the burden to yourself until you can no longer take it
Because the people who promise to help you carry it
Will run once they feel its true weight.
