They take my hand
They smile at me
They hold me close
So tenderly
But their eyes are blank
And their ears are closed
And they know not what
I am

I try to talk
I try to speak
But still I choke
I cannot breathe
They pretend all’s well
They pretend all’s fine
But can’t they see
That they are blind

To believe
That all is just
A lovely scene
And the smile
On their lips
Pierces me

Can’t they tell
I’m wounded so
With all this pain
What do they know
Can’t they see
Can’t they feel
How much they’ve hurt
What they can’t heal

They must see
I am scarred
But all is just
A lovely scene
And while I bleed
I must leave
I must go
I must go
