Silent

Silently, I am dying
Silently, I am crying
I’m hurt deep down inside
Does anyone know?
Does anyone care?
But it’s my feelings I don’t share
I don’t ever dare

For I’m afraid….
I’m afraid no one will understand
Afraid that no one will know where I stand
Afraid I won’t be able to explain it clearly
Afraid they won’t listen carefully

My feelings are locked inside of me
Eating at me slowly
With no one to talk to
No one to hang onto
All my thoughts
All my deep down thoughts
They’re stuck inside of me-
Caught,
Trapped,
Invisible,
Whatever you want to call it

For I’m afraid….
I’m afraid no one will understand
Afraid that no one will know where I stand
Afraid I won’t be able to explain it clearly
Afraid they won’t listen carefully

No one hears my silent screams
Or my silently kept rages
Cause they’re all captured in tiny cages
Or so it seems
My thoughts-
They’re caught in a net
My thoughts-
I just can’t let out
They just exist inside of me
But silently, they want to come out

For I’m afraid….
I’m afraid no one will understand
Afraid that no one will know where I stand
Afraid I won’t be able to explain it clearly
Afraid they won’t listen carefully

And I’m too quiet
I’m always silent
So they’ll never get the hint
To help my hurting silentness
