Happy Birthday

Happy birthday, honey

Let’s sit down and talk

I heard about a bridge

Tell me what you thought


She called me quite hysterically

She thought you would be dead

So tell me how it started

Let me in your head


I want you to see my counselor

He’s of the spiritual type

And lets talk to a doctor

To get something prescribed


You say it started years ago?

Nobody touched you, right?

Well let me tell you my sad tale

To get you on my side


You have some scars on your arms

You know that’s normal, right?

Your mind is just a bit unbalanced

Someday, you’ll be fine


I know you feel you hate me now

But I can take your hate

I just want you to feel better

I’ll do whatever it will take


I should’ve waited til tomorrow

I ruined your birthday

I won’t give up on you

I love you, my baby


The sad part is it was great

An almost perfect day

I wish you would’ve stayed away

Happy birthday to me


Just Because

Just because you’re breathing

Doesn’t mean you’re living


Just because you’re smiling

Doesn’t mean you’re happy


Just because you’re laughing

Doesn’t mean you belong


So much is left hidden

In plain sight


Broken people hide their pain

So that it doesn’t hurt someone else


They hide so much inside their minds

That it hurts too much to live sometimes


She was a beauty queen

Who had everything

A perfect life

A brand new car

The man who every girl

Longed for within her heart


Her smile was bright

With the light of her pain

Her body was covered

With small red cuts

A sign of her shame


Her mind was hungry

For something more

Her heart was longing

For someone to love


She never felt

Like she belonged

She wanted a life

That was long gone


Her hope she swore

Would never fade

But every day

She felt less okay


No one saw

The pain inside

They only saw

What she didn’t hide
