He felt such hopelessness in life, all he could do was jump.
She felt such disassociation, all she could do was cut.
Reality was harsher, than this living hell,
they lived inside their heads. No one could ever tell.
The night harpies of terror, claw her hair each night
When she pulls the covers up around her, shaking from the fright.
The flashbacks and the memories, of her broken bones
Break her hope and will to live, she wants to just be gone.
Away from all the pain, the hurt, the emptiness.
He tries to run, he tries to end the dread,
of living in a quagmire, he tries to choke it from his head.
Wishing it was just a shell that he could peel away and shed.
See, you’re not alone in this, no you’ll never be.
There’s just too much that’s going on for you to ever see,
that others survive, through the same unending pain.
Come in, we’ll hold you dear, we’ll help you feel again.
