Black Rose in the Night

Location

Find me in this maze I call my home.

Remind me why I stay.

Lying about all  the things I felt Yesterday.

Unable to feel love and care everyone walks away.

Leaving me shaking and affraid in this cold, dark place.

Remind me why I struggle on.

My backpack of emotions seems to weigh almost a ton.

Yet, I move forward head down eyes shut.

Feeling emotions that I don't dare let another touch.

I look forward and keep my mask on pretending that I never cared.

But I never allow any to see how much I am scared.

I feel as if my true self unleashed would make you run away in fright.

So I'll keep hiding myself and won't give up much of a fight.
