Just a peeping tom
I watch myself glide through life
with A broken heart and tears on a pillow

Anger building up
Tearing me apart inside
Blowing my cover and
Losing my cool

Love still hurts
But it is an unspoken need
A bullet running through my veins
I want love in my life but
Not enough to deal with the pain

Pain in my mind and body
Affecting my abitity to not to let material things matter to much
Trying to fill avoid in my heart but just another failed attempt

Outsider looking in
No depression they think
Tell that to the cuts on my thighs
Not to my mask I wear so you’ll think I’m fine
Tell that to the tears on my pillows
That I cry at night
And my better off dead additude
Tell that to my restiance to life
To a new school
To a new way of life

tell that to the counselor
Scream it from the mountains
so people will listen to my body screaming out
help me, I have depression
you don’t see it because you don’t want to
I’m not that good of an actress or am I?

i’m just an outsider looking in
A peeping tom
Looking at myself under a microscope.
