I laugh at all the funny jokes

That I hear everyday,

But inside I’m screaming,

For I need to get away.

I try to smile and give facade

To those who profess to care,

Or drop the walls of my defense,

And leave myself ensnared.

For my heart is guarded closely,

From the past that taunts me still,

Yet I long to feel loves close embrace,

And pray my soul be filled.

I need to be set free…

From these bonds that tie me down

Perhaps one day I’ll trust again,

And my spirit be unbound.
