 Reflections of My Heart

The Other Side of Me ღ KKD ღ

The Other Side of Me

Rivers with no end...
that is this path I walk
Hidden behind a mask
always afraid to let my heart talk.

Oh once I dared from this mask
to peek from behind
The wrath that spewed
left me speechless and blind

When once have I dared
to speak of my pain and hurt
I was accused of being nasty and mean
of which my heart was severely burnt

This anger they insist
to cling to so tight
leaves me to cry
in the dead of night.

My heart has been ripped
and carelessly left to die
It has been made clear
of no concern if I cry.

I have been told
what my heart holds so dear
is not my concern
that was made quite clear

I don't understand
this hate they bear
when my love for them
I try so hard to share

The pain is to great
when on the door I do knock
It's not even answered
I fear it's been locked

They make it quite clear
in their life I have no place
I will now back away
and drop out of this race

If by some chance
they should ever have the need
Just know I will be there
with great love and speed

Over the years I've prayed
for them to finally see
what really lies with in
The Other Side of Me
