1. LIVING IN ME

 

Nothing is alright,

No, I am not okay.

Somebody help me, these faces scare me everyday.

I get bad to worse, they always scream.

I wonder if they’d ever know how it feels to be

When you’re living in me.

 

I am a burden they say,

When I need an escape, there is no one with me to stay.

I am too bizarre,

And on those nights when I talk to the stars,

I wonder if they’d ever know how it feels to be

When you’re living in me.

 

“You talk so loud,

You talk so fast”

“Your words make no sense,

Your sentences leave me aghast!”

They look at me as if I committed a crime

Nobody stops the voices I hear all the time.

 I wonder if they’d ever know how it feels to be

When you’re living in me.

 

When I begin something, I leave that task.

Because there’s a person who haunts me everyday

He is gruesome and he wears a mask.

“There’s nobody here! Are you alright?”

How should I tell you that these gabby mockers have now made me quiet.

And I wonder if they’d ever know how it feels to be

When you’re living in me.

 

My wounded soul that once lived,

No, it couldn’t make it because all its power was stripped.

Yes, I fought wild and brave,

But in the end, I reached my grave.

And I wonder if they’d ever know how it feels to be

When you’re living in me.

 

Those demons that lived near me,

Those voices that guided me,

Those faces that haunted me,

Those dreams that wounded me.

I wonder if now they know,

How it feels to be

When you’re living in me…
