If you want to know that all is okay Then don't look at me. For I sit alone Beside the darkened water Sorrow and Misery's only daughter In the stillness of nothing is where I'll be. I can't sing the words of your happy song Nor dance to your merry tune. Fragmented and torn are my emotions Drowned in Life's tumultuous and raging oceans Upon which sanity is swept away To reality's scorching desert dune. And so I can tell you: everything isn't fine I'm really not okay. Don't ever ask just leave me be So I may reclaim my eroded sanity And try as I might To live through another day.
