This Is Me Now

I look in the mirror
and I see my crying soul
People want to look, but
they don't really see me
I'm screaming so loud
How can you not hear me?
My heart was set on the table
You stabbed me many times
Your pleading eyes tell me the truth
My tears fear for a lie
These arms were welcoming once
They are crossed now for no one to come near
A best friend's words
my ears refuse to comprehend
Mother's love I cannot let go
A broken heart she has no grasp of
My God, do not forget me
Here are my hands
Take me away
I feel my life fading
into an unknown
I am so afraid
Like a child lost
Afraid to live again
