Bottled Up


What do you do when everything
You've set up falls apart?
And every time you've tried to restart,
Somebody comes along and pushes over
Your house of cards,
Just because they think it's funny?
Every day I walk down the halls
My suffocating heart leaving
A silent trail of fading memories
For people to forget
Because I don't say anything
About what I want
Or what I need
To be happy because it
Would just be too inconvenient
For anybody to listen to
They push me down
Just to make sure they don't drown
In their own selfish
Mess of an accusation
I don't need to wait for your permission
If you are who I think you are
You'll still be there for me
So I'm not bottled up anymore
