'Miles to go before I sleep'
- Robert Frost

I close my eyes and try to prevent
the tears that threaten to give me away.
I count to ten and try to breathe
to try and get them away.
Because if he knew how much it hurts
every time he rejects me.
I fear that it would blow my mask away
and put my broken heart on show.
I open my eyes, I turn away
I run as fast as I can.
There is no one here,
I'm on my own.
Now I can show how deep I'm broken.
I fall to the ground
and let that throbbing tear,
roll down my cheek.

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go
Your eyes, they shine so bright
I want to save their light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how
When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide

wow this is beautiful! :p
