Harder To Hide - Poem by Jade Leven

she's so used to being this
something he loves to look at
we all want what we can't have

suddenly she's tired of this
why can't he say I love you
and make it something to live up to

she doesn't want to do this
she's so happy on the outside
unsure of what is inside

what will it take to eliminate this
never straying from where she's been
she needs to live without him

tell me, don't you find
it's getting harder to hide
what is inside
you need to understand
that it is going to end
love doesn't bend
it breaks
and it's harder to hide

covered by the only thing he sees
what is there and held by envy
what we all want to be

there's nothing she could ever say
to make him go beyond it
to him it's all that she is

tell me, don't you find
it's getting harder to hide
what is inside
you need to understand
that it is going to end
love doesn't bend
it breaks
and it's harder to hide

it's nothing we can change
nothing we can capture with our innocence
it's in a whole different direction
no room for vengeance

and it's nothing we can make better
nothing we can mend with our forgetfulness
it's a whole other story
it will only make you love him less

tell me, don't you find
it's getting harder to hide
what is inside
you need to understand
that it is going to end
love doesn't bend
it breaks
and it's harder to hide

she's so used to being this
nothing that he can't miss
