Sunshine in a Dark Mind

I couldn't give you the love you needed because I couldn't even love myself.
I couldn't feel the world around me, you've read this before like a book on a shelf.
Lost in my head, I'm lost in my mind. Playing back the things that were said, but myself is something I can't find.
Not what you needed, you were lost yourself.
Two people lost, more books on that shelf.
We've heard this story, not our first time around.
We were a shelter for the storm but now that storm can't be found.
Skies growing clear, but the pain won't subside.
Sun shining down, but it's dark in my mind.
Numb to the world, the feelings just die.
The thoughts in my head say "why even try?"
Giving up hope, I only feel alive, with the pain that I put inside of these rhymes.
