All alone in this crowded place
My eyes meet one…another,
They don’t  see me for what I am
They see the smile on my face
The lies that I’m holding, in order to keep myself together
They don’t  know the pain I feel
 
Their smile is real.
 
So I am alone in this crowded place
Waiting for someone to see through
To save me from myself from the loneliness…
that has overcome me
controlled me
 
I am a slave to this feeling
Waiting for something better
Suffering in myself
