19. Skeleton (a song)

I look at my hands...
I see ash
I look at my eyes...
I see empty black holes
I look at my face...I see a grinning skull
I look at my shadow...
I see a monster
Reaching out to pull me underground
I am falling apart
Inside and outside and under the skin
My mouth is open wide...
I am screaming unheard words
They echo inside of my head
Until someone hears
And saves me from the skeleton I have become
Do you see me now?
I am nothing more than bone
Carved with the sharp words that fly 
Out of your mouth
Do you hear me now?
I have been screaming and crying inside
for so long
Tears refuse to fall...
I am a stone wall...
I used to be
But now I've become something much more gruesome
I am screaming unheard words
They echo inside of my head
Until someone hears
And saves me from the skeleton I have become
I am becoming this
This is what you've made me
You can still save me
Just open your eyes
And see the pain
Just open your ears 
And hear me scream
Just open your mouth to the sky
and
scream
unheard words
They echo inside of our heads
Until someone hears
And saves us
I am screaming unheard words
They echo inside of my head
Until someone hears
And saves me
I am screaming unheard words
They echo inside of my head
Until someone hears
And saves me from
The skeleton I have become
I am falling apart
Inside and outside and under the skin
My mouth is open wide...
