I draw you in,
To keep you out...
Put on my "happy face"
The one with the smile,
You like so much-
Wear the clothes,
You bought for me...
Watch me dance for you...
Did I remember the steps?
And now the performance is over...

You clap your hands,
And smile with your eyes,
I have please you so well,
With this dance in hell...

I turn and walk away,
trembling so bad,
I cannot stay,
Run to my room,
And close the door,
Draw my blinds,
Cover my head,
Am drawn into a blackness so deep,
You can't see me weep.
I lay curled in a tight ball,
Ears closed to your every call,
My hands clenched into fists-
I can pretend you don't exist...

I live in another world here-
One without tears.
Dark, warm, silent.
So non-violent...
Where I have nothing left
For you to steal.
So quiet here,
I like its appeal-

So black,
There is nothing to fear.
Don't know why you keep knocking,
There's nobody here...
