Someone by his Side

Sick of this mask

That he hides behind,

He casts it aside

Without the pain in mind.

Now that his face is bare

And open to the world,

The pain sets in

And his head is twirled,

Sent mad

By agony and dispair,

Until it’s almost

Too much to bear.

 

He tries to keep himself

From doing something stupid

Just so that he doesn’t

Need to find cupid,

But the temptation

Is strong and it’s there

Waiting for him

To take if he dares,

Dangling in front of him

Like a carrot on a stick,

Sure to get him

Unless someone does something quick.

 

Lost on the inside

Nowhere to hide

Nowhere to go,

Needing someone by his side.

He cries out

He cries out

All he wants

Is somebody by his side,

So his true feelings

Don’t have to hide.

He cries out

He cries out

 

He sits with his

Head in his hands

Not sure what to do

As he’s stuck in these sands.

He’s got two ways out,

One easy, one not,

But taking the easy way’s

Not what life is about.

 

He continues to sit

And suffer this pain

Even though now

It’s starting to rain.

Cold and shivering,

Drenched and sneezing,

He sits with a feeling

That’s very displeasing.

He knows what it is

That needs to be done,

But he wonders when he’s next

Going to see the sun.

 

Lost on the inside

Nowhere to hide

Nowhere to go,

Needing someone by his side

He cries out

He cries out

All he wants

Is somebody by his side,

So his true feelings

Don’t have to hide.

He cries out

He cries out

 

It comes

To the end of the day

And he knows what it is

That he wants to say

But he stays silent

As his heart is wrung,

Waiting for the right moment,

Not wanting to be stung.

He thinks about his mask,

Thinks about wearing it again,

As a way to survive

Every now and then,

But prefers to show

What is on the inside

As he hopes to have

Somebody by his side.

 

Lost on the inside

Nowhere to hide

Nowhere to go,

Needing someone by his side.

He cries out

He cries out

All he wants

Is somebody by his side,

So his true feelings

Don’t have to hide.

He cries out

He cries out
