Pushing and Falling

Feeling trapped between closing in walls
I scream so loud but no one hears the calls
I want to break loose, free myself from these chains,
And stop the withdrawal of my heart that remains

It's so hard to give myself to another,
The thought of being hurt again makes me shudder
So I'll keep walking down this loveless road
As my insides fall apart and begin to corrode

I feel myself breaking down, inside and out,
This seed of anger and depression starts to sprout,
The loneliness and hurt, inside me grows
With the mask I wear daily, not a single soul knows

As I sit there smiling, inside I feel frowns
I'm gasping for air, as the good part in me drowns
Pushing it deeper and deeper below the surface,
I can't seem to swim, to rise and find my purpose
