Fading Away

Fading away from everything I knew
Scared and unsure of what to do
I just want to turn and run
But I’ve been made to carry this burden.
I smile with my mask in place
Not many see my real face.
But I can fake this all to well,
My lies lock me away in a cell.
I trip, stumble, fall into darkness
I didn’t expect someone to notice
But your hand catches mine as I slip
And that’s when I learnt the reason of friendship.
