Frail Hearts

Wanting to use something as an escape

 

Feeling like no one can relate

 

Faking a smile to mask the pain

 

Pretending to be happy is just one tiring game

 

Doubting yourself, second guessing your worth

 

Feeling like nothing will ever work

 

Lying in bed, crying yourself to sleep

 

Life’s a game you can’t seem to beat

 

Keeping everything bottled up

 

Making sure no one will call your bluff

 

Just wanting to feel the same

 

Wishing to never again feel pain
