I Can’t Tell You

I'll never find my way
If I'm standing in your shade
Hiding from myself
Allowing my heart to collect dust on the bottom shelf
Strangling my secrets
Burying them the deepest
Not because of my own shame
Your disappointment is to blame
Afraid to admit that I'm not you & don't want to be you
You cast judgment on all that I do
I look in the mirror & see the lies in my eyes
I'm betraying the way I feel inside
I can't tell you that I'm empty & numb
because that would be just so dumb
