Come Out And Play

'Come out and play'

that chiding voice inside my head

calls out to me

as I hide in the corner

reclusive

The scars inside are too deep

for even me to see

And they never break the surface

of my mask

She wanted to be a dancer

a singer

a punk-rocker

with all the colors of the rainbow in her hair

But the world wouldn't allow it

so she hid

And so I hid

behind smiles and fake strength

until I was almost able to believe it 

How I could I let them see

knowing that all they'd do is

laugh and scorn?

So I sit inside

and hide

the words, the music

hidden too deep

for even me to see
