What Have I Become?

What have I become,
I wear this mask everywhere I go,
Trying to hide from you,
Trying to hide from myself,
Wanting to escape
As I lay in my bed, I feel my heart beat
Sometimes wishing it would just cease to send a pulse,
What have I become,
Lonely and sad
My own best friend,
This depression I feel is like a heavy burden on my back
And I carry it wherever I go, and I more than often feel hurt.
I can’t escape,
I’m trapped inside this asylum full of fear,
Waiting for the doctor to finally pull the plug,
And I often wonder who would shed a tear for me in the end.
What have i become?
