in the dark

in the dark i stood for a long time
with no one to hold and no one to care

in the dark i learned to keep everything inside
in the light i want to die
but the dark has came to life
inside of me
inside were no one can hurt me
thats were i want to be
were i can never see a tear dropp ever again
blood would come from in side my wounded
heart in which the heart beat would stop as soon as that tear dropped

i let you in with a gasp
i have let you try to discover the meaning of me but if you
thought seeing me cry was a proof of weakness
your wrong because maybe in the light you see the tear but in the dark youll see the smile
just dont think that im in the dark hiding
im in the dark because im not like everyone
no one in the world could feel what i do
just me no two souls are alike
not even my mother scream
could break down the wall i stand behind
because with out it i would be your biggest pain
so as i let you in be cautious of what you think

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
