How do I get out?
I have been locked in for so many years.
Hidden behind a bunch of lies,
Hidden by her fears.
Clutching on for my sanity,
Trying to break free.
This girl I am trapped inside,
Refuses to let me leave.
I am the truth unspoken,
The tears gone uncried.
The anger tucked away.
The sadness which she smiles over.
I am the truth, and she is afraid.
She crams lies upon me,
So afraid the truth will cry out.
I whisper for her to tell the truth,
Maybe instead I should have yelled.
I punch at her walls,
A headache she will get.
I scratch at her insides,
Until she cries, “I am in your debt.”
Slowly she begins to unravel,
Truth spilling out in tears of guilt,
From keeping me locked in.
