Dark Places

My smile is so bright, it hides away the pain
People ask are you alright?, I say I’m fine time and time again
On the inside, I cry
This deep sadness consuming my all
No matter how much I try to be happy, I continue to fall
There is nothing left to love, nothing left to look forward to
No reason to laugh, but a million to cry
Every sad thought possible, every wish for death
Every day a struggle, just can’t get out of bed
There is another day waiting, gloomy and grey
The monster inside me, just won’t go away
My tears cannot wash the evil demon from my soul
I fear it may be too late
He’s dragging me down now, I cannot escape
The only way to kill it is the blade in my hand
