Hiding and I canít come out,
Tears wonít stop from coming,
I canít stay here anymore,
Though I must stop the running,
I feel Iím being cornered here,
No one can see me anymore,
Theyíve never seen me at all,
So whatís the running for?
I must not run away from it,
I canít give another tear,
Iím drained emotionally,
Living in my own fear,
If Iím caught running away,
Iíll be scorned nonetheless,
If Iím caught in their trap,
Iíll be blamed for the mess,
If I was to stay here all along,
And face each waking day,
I would still be blamed,
The blame wonít go away,
If I am to say the truth,
My truth is always wrong,
If I am told to tell the lie,
Itís my fault all along,
If I lead Iím wrong to do so,
Scorned for standing tall,
For if I am to follow them,
Theyíll say theyíd known Iíd fall,
Why do I need these people?
I can only give my heart & soul,
Iíve given them both away,
And now I am the fool,
I will not tell you anything,
Not one emotion I may feel,
You are a coward of a friend,
You are not true nor are you realÖ

------- Author's Notes -------

I'm tired of giving so much of myself to my "friends," and never getting a thing back. There is only so much I can take, so instead of a useless confrontation, I'll distance myself. When you see me doing this, that means you've b-e-t-r-a-y-e-d me...

you have taken the words right out of my mouth. you're like my long lost twin. i cant even count the number of times i have given myself to "friends" and got nothing in return. i continue to hide, to cry, to run, and i dont know why. great work!

I'm glad you liked it and feel the same way. I'm sure lots of people feel the same way we do, I'm glad it's not just me out there all alone. Thanks for the comment, they always make me feel better!
