You asked how I feel
Then didn’t listen
To a single word I said

Don’t have a fucking clue
How it really feels
To be inside my head

I know it’s because
You can’t possibly see
These jagged cracks
Here in my soul

You just see the girl
Who from the outside
Seems quite whole

I’ve beseeched
Any god who
Could feasibly listen
To be free
Of this pain

Where the chaos
Here inside my brain
Slowly,
Slowly goes insane

And all I seek
Is to be kind
And to be true
Not so much to me
But always to you

So please
Don’t fucking ask
Unless you can hear
Because I’m not a fairy tale

I’m just me
At every turn
Feeling like I’ll fail
Stuck here

inside my mind
A constant reel
In constant rewind
