Waiting For The End

written by: Aaliyah


Tears build up,
Running down my face,
Silent as ever,
Waiting for a moment,
When the numbness ceases,
To live again,
Eternally dead within,
Smiles painted on,
Crafted beautifully,
Fooling everybody,
The hearts of many,
Fall for the game,
I know it has to be,
For my heart,
Yearns to feel,
But I know,
It's not real,
For the game of pretend,
Never ends,
My heart empty,
Soul cracked...
I am nothing now,
More than pretend,
The game has to end,
But only with me dead...
